Yesterday was all about carrots.  Today it is all about strawberries.  I used a new Strawberry Basket die set (DIE 397-L) that includes the basket, six berry dies, and six berry top dies.  I cut out a ton of strawberries since anyone who is "berry berry special" would need a lot of berries.  
 
Here is a close up of my stash of berries:


And a close up of the basket detail and stamped background....


For the background, I used the Gingham Cover a Card Background (CC006) and stamped it in Colorbox Chalk Creamy Brown ink onto kraft cardstock.  I want to thank fellow designer Daniela for the inspiration because she recently mentioned that particular background to the rest of us, and the pattern was fresh in my mind when I made this card.  I use the gingham background for baby cards, Christmas, Halloween, and just about any occasion.  I thought it would be good for the country look of this card.  

Finally, I added a stitched green frame cut from the All in One Rectangles Frames Die 2 die and a saying from the Farm Fresh Clear set (CL655).   

Be sure to check out the other designers to see what they are doing with the new dies!
