Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration 39

Isn't this a fun picture! I love the three bubblegum machines in a row like that. When I first saw Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge KWCI39 for this week I instantly thought the colors looked very Mary Engelbright-like. I thought I wanted to do something with cherries. While I did use a fruit stamp, I changed from cherries to strawberries. I also used a sketch challenge from Stephanie Hargis TECC52SH. Talyored Expressions is celebrating a year of Cupcake Challenges. She has 9 sketch challenges and you have the opportunity to win with every card you make. Very fun! I don't know if I'll get all nine done, but I've already finished two, so expect to see more posts from me this weekend! Here's my card:

CARDSTOCK: Basic Black, So Saffron, Green Galore, Whisper White, Real Red DSP
STAMPS: Tart and Tangy (the sentiment is a rub-on)
ACCESSORIES: SU! Apple Green Grosgrain (retired) Black Grosgrain unknown, Cuttlebug Dots
I used some Crystal Effects on my strawberry, which made it nice and shiny, but it sort of muddied it too. You can't quite see the "seeds" as well. I also poked holes in the Scallop Circle, but it doesn't show up in the photo at all. Sorry!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
