Fusion Vintage Floral - So Sweet

Hi!  How is everybody doing?  Keeping busy here as normal! LOL!  Lots going on... still in the middle of my craft room renovation.  Some items on back order, but feeling a billion pounds lighter... There are stacks of things everywhere waiting to get put away and organized when the cabinets come in ... but so many things I got rid of.  Things I was saving for.. "Some Day".  I'm trying to stick with the items I use the most.  It broke my heart to get rid of all my fancy paper punches... but my wafer thin dies take up so much less space and I use them much more often - every day often. The punches?  Not so much..  I just hope they find a happy home and someone loves them as much as I did!! LOL!!!

 A new challenge begins today at Fusion Card Challenge!   You  can work from the inspiration photo or the sketch..whatever moves you.  Feeling clever?  Put them together like I did!  The shapes on the sketch are just for reference, a circle doesn't have to be a circle.   I was inspired by the bright red and yellow of the photo!  I wasn't feeling so "flowery".  It's cold and windy here and I'm thinking spring.  I thought these strawberries (an oldie but a goodie) would do the trick.    Yep!  More Basic Grey paper - totally addicted I must say!  What ever happened to October Afternoon?  Anybody know?  Gosh I miss them! 
I originally stamped my strawberries on the pattern paper.  They got a little lost - no problem.  I just stamped them a second time on white card stock, fussy cut them and layered them over the original.   Sometimes when mixing pattern papers the layers get lost - to help define them a little better I added distress ink to the edges, and matted one of the pieces on a solid pink card stock panel.
