Not only is today Friday -- it's Flourishes Friday and today the design team is showing off some purely delish designs using an oldie but goodie -- STRAWBERRIES! If you haven't seen this lovely, check it out!

Doesn't it just make your mouth water? Well, wait until you see what the design team whipped up with this set. Some also used a cherished background called Basketweave...

And... as I move on to my creation, I took on an extra bit of a challege thanks to Flourishes' artist, die designer, author and all around great gal -- Becky Fleck and....

Today, Becky will load up a new round of CardMaps over at and some of the Flourishes designers took part by taking on one of her ten new card sketches! Here was my sketch.

And..... here is my creation!

So, you can see I used the berries for my background, stamping them with one of Memento's newest colors -- Peanut Brittle. Then, I colored up my berries with Copic Markers and I used these collections....

After I colored it all up, I did add some dots to the berries with the help of a white gel pen.
You can see in the background, I did use the Basketweave stamp to add a little extra pop. The paper is from my scrap bin, May Arts ribbon, and the pennants were cut with my Grand Calibur using the Nested Pennants die from Spellbinders. I did add a little bit of paper piercing as well. And that... my friends... is it!

Be sure to click on to check out the fun! While you are hopping, make sure to pay these fine ladies below a visit!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful and creative weekend ahead. Until next time..... Happy Stamping!

Strawberries - - yummm! It's getting closer to MI berry time, too. I've been thinking strawberry pie and since your berries look good enough to eat, I'll be inspired to head to the kitchen as well as the studio with this one. Happy Weekend! Mr Wonderful has spent most of his week of vacation working on my yard and back decks. It's getting there and I'm good at fetching and toting and being the carpenter's assistant when I arrive after work (or so I keep assuring myself ;).
