The reason I didn't share this card earlier is because I entered it in the Page Maps Anniversary card contest and guess what?......I was selected as the winner! I love using Becky's sketches for both card making and scrapbooking so it was an honour to be selected. The theme was "celebration" so I turned the card into a birthday card by adding some rub-ons to the front of the sentiment. You can see my card as well as the winning layout featured in the June newsletter.
My tip of the day: why not create a set of cards using the same supplies? For this set of cards I had already made three of the felt strawberries and had everything else sitting on my desk so it was really easy to use everything at once to make a matching set of cards. I definitely want to use this strategy more in the future and it's a great way to minimize scraps!!
As always, be sure to stop by the Unity blog for Friends with Flair Friday. Have a great weekend!
(Excuse the green tinge on this card. At the time I was photographing we had two weeks of rain and the lighting was awful so I had to adjust a bit and ended up with a bit of green around the edges)
