A berry simple card

I discovered Isabella's Sketchbook, thanks to the enabling of some of my blog group ladies (Linda and Peggy), and fell head over heels for this strawberry plant image.   Luckily, I had the perfect sentiment to go with it from one of my Papertrey Ink sets, Year Round Puns.

 Isabella's Sketchbook is having a challenge on their blog to make a birthday card with one of their images and I entered this one.  Enter yours here.

Thanks for the visit and I hope you have a berry good day!



 
Supplies:  Kraft cardstock, pattern paper and sentiment from Year Round Puns, button from Papertrey Ink.  Image is Strawberry  Plant from Isabella's Sketchbook.  Ribbon is ??.  White cardstock is by Mohawk.

  19. Oh I love the colors on this....and with kraft too - great to be bold on the kraft like that. This image reminds me of the Cosmo Cricket line with the fruits & veggies...only you colored yours so that's always better. That ribbon is so pretty too with the lil' button on top.
