Strawberry card + Freebie!


This week I decided to make a birthday card from my MIL. So I used Lindsay's new set with the strawberries and watermelons. I love strawberries! And you know, it isn't often that I get to combine red and green other than christmas. Because let's face it, it's hard to make anything with those two colors without them looking christmas-y. But I think I pulled it off thanks to the berries. I used the sketch this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
To color the digi, I used some new markers I got on clearance at walmart. They are Martha Stewart craft markers. I love the colors, but I'm not too good at the blending yet. hmmm...

The strawberry stamp comes from Lindsay's new set below.

Don't forget to stop by Lindsay's blog to snag a freebie and check out the work by the DT!

Now for your Thursday freebie!
