Strawberries - YUMMMMM

Yesterday evening I  had my first bowl of strawberries from my strawberry patch.  I love strawberry season.  Now if I can just stay ahead of the grandchildren.  They have the habit of raiding the patch.  But hopefully there will be an abundance and there will be enough for everyone's hearts desires.

There are several challenges with the theme of Summer and  Summer fun.  That means strawberries.  I used the sketch at Sweet Stop .  The challenge was to use the sketch with a spin - texture.  The background paper by Doodle Pantry reminds me not only of strawberry blossoms but of the crisscross containers that berries sometimes come in.  Even though you can't see it in the picture, I scored each of the lines so that they are raised. Then I added some mesh which reminds me of the cartons.

The main image is a digital by Designed2Delight.  Three blossom clusters down the side are by Daisy Doodles and the sentiment is a stamp by GKD.
