Strawberry Sweetness

Mummm, yumm...think strawberries and chocolate. An amazing confection, candy for the pallet. And this sweet little card I whipped up is definitely a feast for the eyes - eye candy! The beautiful color combination of pinks, coral, celery green and deep chocolate brown are rich fare, drawing the eye back to feast again and again. As happens with many of the cards I photograph, I don't think the camera does it justice. I wanted to make something light and sweet with this week's Splitcoast Stampers' Wednesday Sketch sC222. I recently won a pack of DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl paper in a blog candy give-away on Becca Feeken's wonderful blog Amazing Paper Grace. So I broke it out and decided the strawberry design was perfect for this retired SU set Fairies. SU's Cameo Coral and Certainly Celery were a prefect match as was the silk ribbon and silk flowers I've had hanging around in my stash for some time. A perfect opportunity to get them out and use them. I just love this color combination.

Here's the card recipe:
