Fresh strawberries

     Our challenge this week at The Kraft Journal is "Farm Fresh".  I found this great digi stamp of strawberries  in my stash and colored it up with Copics.  The card base is a 3 7/8" square of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock.  I then punched a 5" square piece of the same with a MS punch around the page set and attached that to the card base.
     I then added some designer paper that I encircled with Dark Jewel Hemp Cord.  My image is popped up on pop dots and matted with Brown Kraft.  I added a bow of 7 Gypsies Savannah Seam Binding and some buttons tied with Hang Tag String.
     It's a smaller card than I usually make, but it packs a punch with that image.  We'd love to see you join the challenge this week.  Just use some kraft or a Kraft Outlet product and link your creation up by 6:00 p.m. EST on Sunday to get your name in the hat for this months $15.00 gift voucher, a Top Three of the Week spot, or a Feature Me Friday Spot.
     I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Crafty Boots--food glorious food
Crafty Catz--something beginning with "B" (buttons, berries, bow, border)
My Mum's Craft Shop--buttons and ribbons
Sisterhood of Crafters--use a digi

     Have a fabulous week!
