Simple Strawberries


Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players. This week I have the pleasure and honor of being your hostess with a Clean & Simple Challenge - Fruits & Veggies!



My fruit of choice is strawberries. I must admit that this is the second card I made for this challenge. The first one turned out to be not so clean and simple, and I figured that since I am the hostess, I'd better play by the rules! This one has lots and lots of white space, minimal layers, and I even restrained myself when it came to embellishments. I think the one small strip of gingham lends a little bit of  a country feeling. I'm also playing along with two other challenges...





I used the layout at Freshly Made Sketches, which was perfect for my wreath. At Addicted to CAS, the code word this week is - you guessed it - Berries!


Stamp Sets: Simply Scrumptious, A Little Something (Clearly Besotted)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: Tiny Checks (My Favorite Things)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Ruby Red, Forest Glades (Altenew)
Tools: Big Shot, Simply Scrumptious Dies (Clearly Besotted)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. I hope you'll play along with my challenge this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)

This is simply adorable Sandy! That little strawberry wreath is too cute and the pop of gingham is the perfect touch. I struggle with CAS cards but you really know how to make a statement with them. Love it! So glad to be back on the team with you again, my friend. Hugs! :)
