Hand Stamped Sentiments - Berry Sweet!

Happy Friday!  I hope you're having a great day!  There's been lots of storms traveling through the Midwest and a common result for me here in Indiana is a power outage.  I'm glad I still have time to play along with this one from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Usually I'm running late and one day could have made all the difference!
This one looks a little tricky.. lots going on right?  I love a sketch.. it takes lots of the guess work out of making a card for me.   I kept seeing a big berry where the pink circle is on the sketch.. here's how it turned out... 
The July release Reverse Confetti Berry Sweet stamp set is fresh and summer sweet! 
I stamped my sentiment in the same place the words are in the layout.  I chose a light pattern paper so the stamping would be easy to read.  I mixed papers from two different collections from Reverse Confetti - Under the Umbrella and Pattern Play.

The berry is stamped in Memento ink and colored with Copic markers.  I added a wrap of burlap button twine around the card and finished it with a bow.  It compliments the berry and makes me think of trips to the strawberry fields to pick them when I was little.  The burlap reminds me of the straw that would be dusted down the rows.

The "sweet" word die is from the Lovely Words Confetti Cuts .  I scattered flowers from the Berry Sweet set in lieu of sequins.  The pearl centers are just the right amount of bling!
Yummy right?  Have a great day!
