Chocolate and Strawberries

Happy Sunday my friends.  I hope you are all enjoying the long Memorial Day weekend.  It's been kind of relaxing for me today.  So much so that I was able to get a couple cards done, one of which is for the Monday Greeting Card Challenge over at The Outlawz.  The theme there is Strawberries.  This is the only stamp I had that would fit the challenge and since I'm a chocolaholic, it was perfect.

Can you believe I made a card and did NOT use even one Copic marker on it.  Oh well, there will be more of those coming up soon.  LOL!

For this one it's mostly Stampin Up, in fact it's all Stampin Up except that little piece of dp that is under the strawberries and sentiment layer.  The base is SU Real Read as well as the mat under the flowery dp.  The images and sentiment are done using SU Whisper White.  The images are colored using SU markers direct to the stamp and then stamped.  I didn't like the look of the images.  Not sure why they came out kind of fuzzy, but I used the markers and colored in the images once they were stamped.  The sentiment is stamped using SU Chocolate Chip.  The dp which is on top of the base is from SU Berry Blossom.  I used the Martha Stewart Swirling Lace edge punch along the bottom edge of the Real Red layer.  To finish it off, I put a red brad up in each corner of the card.

That's it. Pretty simple and easy.  Enjoy your holiday tomorrow.

I am submitting this card to:
The Outlawz Greeting Card Challenge - Strawberries
Great Impressions Challenge #3 - Anything Goes
