A berry happy day

Well, it's Monday, so not 'a berry happy day' because I could use another day off this weekend!
I had a great time on Saturday with Linda and Paula as we traveled to Kitchener to Scrapfest. We met up with Emily at the Stamping Bella booth.  Linda and Paula helped with the make n' takes, so I wondered around.  I had no intentions of buying anything, but, well you know how that goes, I came home with goodies.  Mainly Tim Holtz products - stains, distress ink, and alcohol inks, a couple 6x6 paper packs, and a couple of new dies - yes, one can never have too many! LOL!

I received my new stamps from the last release, so they were just ichin' to get inked.  I love the new Flynn images.  Today I share with you Flynn's Berryhappyday.

I could of kicked my self on Saturday.  As I was walking around the show, I noticed this 12x12 paper that was very pretty and had little strawberries on it.  Right away I thought of this stamp I used today.  I didn't feel like carrying one piece of paper around so thought oh I'll wait until later.  Well later in the day, do you think I could remember which booth I saw it at? NO! So, I rummaged through my papers at home and couldn't find anything with berries on, so I went with this colourful paper from MME called Quite Contrary. 

As always, I stamped her on bella's bestest white paper and coloured her with copics and shaded with pencils and gamsol.  Dies used are oval and labels #18. This image also comes with a sentiment which I stamped using black versafine on a strip of white c/s.  Rounded the corners and layered it onto a piece of red c/s. 

Finished the card off with glitter on the large strawberry and I added some glossy accents on the smaller strawberries on her dress.  A bit of stitching around the image and popped up the sentiment at the bottom.

This week's bellariffic challenge is a sketch.  We would love for you to play along. See sketch on previous post below. 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Hehe - I'm laughing at your paper story. Why the heck do we hesitate on purchasing great finds, we know we're only going to kick ourselves later? But your compromise paper looks mighty fine. I saw this on Em's post and realized that I've been slacking in seeing what everyone's been doing. Wanted to stop in and say it looks so fabulous! The red matt really makes her pop!
