Sweet Birthday Wishes

Here's another birthday card to add to my stash.  This one is based on the current sketch at Match the Sketch.

Sweet Birthday Wishes card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from WPlus9
With summer quickly coming to a close, I thought I'd ink up WPlus9's berry-filled Fresh Picked set one last time for the season.  I stamped a trio of strawberries with the help of my MISTI for the cluster of elements at the left of the cardfront.  For a background, I adhered a pale green cardstock panel with a red gingham patterned strip along the bottom to the center of a darker green card base.  I edged the center panel with narrow kraft strips, then added a wider kraft strip across the cardfront, hiding the seam between the two different paper panels.  The berries were arranged on top using foam tape for dimension.  I completed the design by stamping the set's "sweet birthday wishes" sentiment just above the kraft strip in green ink.

Materials Used:
Fresh Picked stamp set, Fresh Picked dies (WPlus9); Memento Lady Bug and Bamboo Leaves inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse, and Kraft cardstock, Pure Poppy patterned paper (Papertrey Ink); foam tape
