You're all so "berry" sweet!

Yes...yes I do realize that was an incredibly corny title, and yet somehow I just could not resist!  This card was made for Erica at Cricut Craft Room for one of her challenges last week.  If you still have not added her then Go!  Do IT NOW!  She is such a wealth of knowledge, and I feel so fortunate to have found her.  As a bonus, when she reaches 1000 followers she is giving away a Cricut Cake Mini!!!  Be sure to let her know that Ricki sent you!  Anywhoo, we were to design a project using the feature buttons ONLY from any cartridge.  Sounds easy but it's harder than you think!    
 
I used:
DCWV Stack in Neutrals
Bazzill cardstock for the Strawberry and the background layer
Bo Bunny paper for the rounds under the berry
Country Life Cricut cartridge
Inkssentials Glossy Accents in black for berry seeds
outlined the "Sweet" font with Marvy 1122 Le Plume II marker

I ALWAYS look at a card after it's done and think about what I should have done differently to make it even more cute.  I'm not sure if it's because I never seem to have enough time to second guess myself as I go, or if I would ever be satisfied regardless!  I hope you like it though and don't forget to follow me!
