Sweet Strawberries for Paper Players 546

The latest challenge at The Paper Players was just meant to be. I have been in possession of the Sweet Strawberry bundle for most of this year and have never got around to opening it. So the Clean and Simple Berry/Fruit Challenge seemed to be there just to make me take the leap!

I like to make things CAS, and this set was an easy one to CAS-ify. The strawberries really dictated the colours: red, green, white and a touch of yellow and gold.

Although the set provides outline stamps and lovely filler stamps, I chose to colour the outline stamps with Stampin' Blends for a richer colour.

The punched strawberries and flower are popped up on dimensionals to give more sense of depth. A trio of Gilded Gems completes the clean and simple design.

Update: Over the moon to be chosen as the Headliner at The Paper Players!
