Gettin' Fruity

I haven't been able to play along with Hand Stamped Sentiments for some weeks now so made some time this morning to make a card for their latest challenge which is "Fruity".  Now that was a challenge!  I hunted through my stamp sets and could only find one fruity set - Tart & Tangy.  I combined this challenge with the latest sketch challenge at Clean & Simple Stamping and came up with one of my quickest, simplest cards ever:

I used the white on white layering approach, which I love but rarely remember to use.  The strawberries were colored with markers then stamped using a Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I wanted a plain font for my sentiment so dug around until I found A Little Birthday Cheer.

Thanks for looking.

Edited to add:  This was chosen as a top pick this week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Thanks!

Products Used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Tart & Tangy; A Little Birthday Cheer

Such a cute card, Karren - I love it! I'm not game to do 'white on white', for fear of smudging ink, LOL.
