Seize The Sketch #22 - Strawberries & Chocolate

Hello friends!  Time for a new sketch at Seize The Sketch!  Design team member Lori Tecler came up with a neat design that can be adapted in so many ways.  Here's my take:


So funny:  my first and second cards as a design team member here at STS both include berries!  I must be hungry.  ;-)


See the square that says "any shape"?  I used two strawberries from Papertrey Ink's Fusion Berry for my shape.  Tried to give them a sugared effect with a coating of clear fine glitter, and a few 'water drops' from Glossy Accents.

I bought some pearl-topped pins from Dritz in the sewing notions section of my local craft store, but they seemed a bit sparse here.  Pulled out my old Stampin' Up! Pretties Kit, and added another pearl and faceted bead to one pin.  Much better!


On a personal note, I'd like to enter this in my friend Darnell's first-ever challenge!  It's called NBUS, which stands for "never before used schtuff".  Don't we all have plenty of that.  (wink, wink)


Thanks so much for dropping by today!  I'm glad you're here.  Hope you get a chance to play with us!  Click HERE to link up.

Those little stick pins are the icing on the berries with this pretty card, Colleen! You definitely made those dewy-fresh strawberries look good enough to eat with their lip-smackin' sugar coating! This is a perfect inspiration for the sketch!!

Thank you so much for joining my NBUS Challenge and spreading the word! Enjoy the day! Hugs, Darnell
