It's Straw-berry Season!
Or so I thought...until I walked into the local Giant Eagle today to find that the "2 for $3.98" deal was nixed, sometime since last Friday. Now you only get one container for that price -boohoo. Oh well... here's a big, juicy bowl for FREE, made from a new set from Clear Dollar Stamps, "Fruity Fun", released earlier this month. Check out my fellow dt members who showcased this set for tons of sweet inspiration:
Details on my card:

Stamps: "Fruity Fun" - Clear Dollar Stamps
Ink: Brilliance "Pearlescent Ivy", "Pearlescent Poppy", "Pearlescent Coral", "Pearlescent Lime" & "Mediterranean Blue"; Staz-On "Timber Brown"
Markers: Copic #E55 (w/airbrush system)
Cardstock: SU "Certainly Celery", "Ballet Blue", "Very Vanilla"
DP: A Muse "Kitchen Green"; Graphic45 "Fashionista" collection

Here is a (slightly blurry, sorry) close-up of the berry bowl. As you can tell, I used varying layers of foam adhesive (one layer for some of the berries, two for the bowl).

Thank you for stopping by! I hope a wonderful week was had by all. Please come back later in the weekend for another card or two!
