Hello & Welcome.
Today I'm sharing a card that was based of Freshly Made Sketches#495. - Sadly I wasn't able to complete the card in time to post it for the challenge.
That's okay though because I really liked the sketch and how my card turned out so you get to see it anyway!
Here is the sketch:
Below is the card that I created using it as my inspiration. This card is going to my Mother-in-law who just turned 95 yesterday. Yes it's going to be late but she will still be thrilled to get it and it's the thought that counts anyway.
I had started working on a card with that awesome Strawberry patterned paper ages ago but when I went to stamp the strawberries my ink pad had dried up so bad that I ended up having to get a new one so the project got put in the container where I keep things that I have started or cut out and just haven't found a use for them yet.
I got it out this morning and decided to try this sketch even though it was past the date to post it for the challenge.

On a personal note:
I love Strawberries and picked them for 8 summers as a kid. We had a bad year here for the berry season due to hail storms & then excessive heat but we did manage to enjoy a few half-flats of berries and boy were they good.
This was the first dessert I made with them this summer:
Strawberry/Rhubarb Cheesecake bars. They were so yummy. Yesterday I made a no-bake pie with some and later this week I'm going to make a Strawberry/Rhubarb Crumble.
