What says SUMMERTIME like fresh yummy strawberries?! My husband planted strawberries in our garden this year and we have been enjoying them daily. Yum.

I used the Digital image LITTLE STRAWBERRY COLOR. I worked in Microsoft publisher to set up my text box and layer my strawberries using the png strawberry image. Png allows you to overlap images. Which is what I needed here since the berries are visible through the basket.

The basket is a preview of the new SVG/PDF PICNIC BASKET TEMPLATE that will be released Friday, July 22nd. I used a side from the basket template for my card. My card is a 5x5 square.

RECIPE:
Stamps/Images: Little Strawberry COLOR Digital Image (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Cardstock/Papers:Cottonball White, Worn Parchment
Inks/Markers:Printer, Palette Ink Pads Ripe Olive, Hot Cocoa, Wild Ginger, Whisper White (SU)
Accents/Tools:Picnic Basket SVG/PDF (Clear Dollar Stamps), Cherry Go Round Crystal Stickers, Scotch foam tape, Large Round Corner Punch
Techniques:Faux Wood Technique, Digital, SVG

Now hop on over to TRUDY'S BLOG.
