Mojo Monday 254 and Freshly Made Sketches #48

I recently ordered this colorful strawberry printed paper from Gina K's Stamp TV and  I've been wanting to play with it. I already had some red and navy papers out a new sketch from
Mojo Monday so I'm good to go... on a on with the show.

These colors are so bright and happy I had fun playing. I tried different bows - a green satin - some jute twine -light blue gingham looked pretty good but I love the polka dots with these papers. 

I fussy cut tree strawberries and two leaves popped up with dimensional dots. I tried three little white flowers with tiny pearls [ inked yellow with sharpie pen] where the red rhinestones are, but I liked the stones better.

"Berry Sweet" was computer printed to a text box sized to layer. This would be a nice thank you card don't you think?

  I saw this Freshly Made  sketch and immediately thought red white and blue. The hostess and engineer of this sketch is: Tui.

 I gathered my scraps, cut-stamped-punched and inked...all done. I think this could be a masculine card - what do you think?
