Berry Sweet!

Happy Friday!
Today's card is a Berry sweet card I think and when I showed my husband he said to me, "berry much? don't you girls ever grow up?" lol- of course my response was what for?
It is a house mouse image and with the strawberries it reminded me of spring and then I wanted to use the pinks. Actually what I wanted was to experiment coloring the strawberries, shading them. If you look close I then added a little laguer. The DP is DCWV paperpack and layered with SU celery and pretty in pink. I even stitched it with my sewing machine- that was a trip. I used SU grosgrain to finish it off.
I have some good news to share with you all this weekend. So I will be back Sat or Sun to share some new things going on with me!
Have a good one!
