Papertrey Ink thank you card

Hello everyone,

I hope you are having a good weekend and enjoying the sunshine if you have it. I am behind with my 'Stretch your stamps' homework but hope to catch up over the next few days. I'm having a break today to play along with the current challenge over at Less is More. Chrissie and Mandi have asked us to do the dreaded one layer card this week and use the number 3 in some way. Are you enjoying the strawberry season? I have been eating them 'til they are coming out of my ears this year. It seems to have been an exceptional year for bumper crops and the flavour has been wonderful. When I was browsing my stamps to find something for this challenge, I came across my strawberry stamp and came up with this:-



I kept it very simple and used 3 strawberries and three colours on the card before framing it with an embossed rectangle to add some texture. Do pop over and see all the inspiration on the LIM blog.

Thanks for looking.

Hugs
