A Berry Sweet Sketch Challenge!

ODBD stamps: Canning Jars, Canning Jar Fillers, Canning Jar Fillers 2, Strawberries, designed by Grace Nywening

Today I am sharing a card I made for this week's Shining the Light Challenge over on the ODBD Blog!  It's a sketch challenge this week!  




I stamped the image with Memento, and then using my stamp positioner, I stamped the strawberries inside the jar and colored with Copics.  I cut with the custom canning jar die.  My designer paper is Lasting Impressions and Pink Paisley (the stripes).  I repurposed a coaster from a trip to Olive Garden.  They gave me several and I knew I could put them to good use!  My tag is cut with a SB tag die and I embellished with some ribbon and pearls.  This is a CAS sketch and I left it that way.  I'm beginning to get the hang of CAS I think.... I'm a lot less uncomfortable with it so that's progress!!! :)

Have a wonderful week!
