Birthday Berries!

Awhile ago I found this cool challenge blog called Catered Crop but I just never made any time to participate until today.

Here's how you play...
Use any of the ingredients (themes, colors, techniques, shapes, etc.) in the recipe given to make your project. You don't have to use all the ingredients or the same brands. Just pick a few ingredients and then add your own spices to cook up something uniquely yours.

Here are this week's challenge ingredients. The green highlighted ingredients were the ones I incorporated into my card.

  • Colors – red, white, green, and brown
  • Stamps and Stickers – cake, flowers, mice, strawberries
  • Patterns – circles, checked/gingham
  • Color Mediums – markers (ProMarker, Copics)
  • Embellishments – banners
  • Tools – border bunches
  • Techniques – faux stitching, doodling/drawing
  • Theme – birthday
Happy Birthday

supplies: stamps, Flourishes; patterned papers, Cosmo Cricket, Fancy Pants Designs; inks, Memento, Copic; pen, Sharpie, Signo; tools, Tim Holtz ruler; corner rounder, EK Success; edge punch, Fiskars; cardstock, Gina K. Designs, Bazzill; die cut shape, Spellbinders.

Here's a close up of my strawberry details. I coloured them in using Copics and then added the white seed highlights using a white Signo pen.

Come on over and check out Catered Crop! Super fun!
