Oh so talented Jeri is our hostess at BBTB2 this week and she chose Simply Charmed as the cartridge. We were asked to design with the strawberry. We would love to have you join in on our challenge, and remember...you don't have to have Simply Charmed. Use any cartridge that has a strawberry. Please remember to mention on your blog that you have entered your card in the BBTB2 challenge.
For my base card, I used a 5x7 size. I cut away half of the front fold so that the main design could "hang" from a sturdy upper card strip. I strengthened this upper "flap" by adding a red scallop strip, a white scalloped strip and some pattern paper. I cut 4 strawberries; 3 small, and one larger for the focal point. The title is also from Simply Charmed. Everything has been embossed with the Cuttlebug. Finally, I added a green jewel on the leafy stem.
I hope you have viewed all of the cards from the design team. If you haven't as yet, just click here and you can see the cards. The team is so so talented, and I love how each of us on the team has their own take on the challenge.
