A Berry Great Day

How is it March Break already??  Seriously, it feels like my son just had Christmas break like 2 days ago, and now it is March???  I know life has been hectic lately, but this is starting to feel a bit ridiculous. 

Along with the crazy busy days has been some crazy weather and today I would like it to feel like late Spring and not early Spring... so with that in mind, I picked up the super cute Berry Best Stamp Set (C1759) and the So Much Happy Paper Collection.  For the card design, I used this week's sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, and I was inspired to create this very laid back, day out in the country Spring card.

I love the white daisy "cross-stitch" pattern on the lemon yellow paper, and the flower pattern is just too cute! I mixed them with Kraft Paper, and the colours just pop out at you. The Berry Best stamp set is adorable, the stamping of the strawberries and leaves onto the bowl was way easier to line up than I thought it would be.  This stamp set also has some very sweet sentiments, and the stamping for this card was done using Mint, Candy Apple Red, and Clover inks.  To add a bit of dimension to my card, I actually balled up the kraft paper and then flattened it back out again before I glued it down.  I like the subtle creases and wrinkles in the background. I also used a very tiny hole punch from my tool stash to make room for the White and Gold Twine.

Thank you for visiting! I hope I have inspired you to come to play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I am also going to submit this card to Color My Heart Color Dare #333 - TicTacToe as they are also featuring the So Much Happy Colours.

Happy Crafting!
