Strawberry thank you

I needed a thank you card recently, so I made this card using the June 6th sketch challenge from Our Creative Corner. The strawberry collage image is a new stamp I recently got from the Angel Company. The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics and Spicas. The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms.

The card base is Papertrey Ink's Kraft card stock with a layer of their Vintage Cream on top. The patterned paper is from Provocraft Pathways Romance Pad and is matted with Stampin' UP's Always Artichoke. The main image is matted with Riding Hood Red in addition to the Always Artichoke. The Riding Hood Red layer was cut using a Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities die. The square green brads are from Bazzill and the ribbon is from the Paper Source.

Not a lot to it, but I liked the way it turned out and it came together pretty quickly - start to finish it was about an hour. That's the closest I'll ever get to a ten-minute card!

Hope you're having a good week. Thanks for looking!

Don't forget to check back next week for a chance to win some blog candy!

I am glad to know that I'm not the only one that takes an hour to make a ten minute card. This beautiful card doesn't look like a ten minute card to me... Thanks for the inspiration.

Great card and who needs to be timed anyway. My toughest part is just getting an idea and keeping it long enough to make the card...I think that's called senile. Pat

It's wonderful! I love how you colored the strawberry - the shading is perfect. And all of those layers are so interesting. :)
