A Strawberry Sweet Birthday Wish

My card today was created to join in the fun new challenges at Digi Haven, which is a new Challenge Blog especially for those lovers of Free Digital Images.

To play along with their very first challenge you are required to use a Freebie Forever Image ie.  A image that is offered by the creator for free on their site always, not just for a limited time period.


Image:  Strawberry from Jane's Doodles, Sentiment:  Unity KOTM
Paper/Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Real Red Cardstock, Paper unknown from Stash
Ink/Color:  Real Red Ink Stampin' Up! and Tria Markers.
Other:  Glossy Accents, Scallop Border Punch from Stampin' Up!


I went browsing for an image to use and came across this very sweet Strawberry on the site Jane's Doodles which I thought would go perfectly with the strawberry papers I have had in my stash for years.

I simply cut out the image twice, the first once I colored with my Tria Markers and then used glossy accents over the red flesh of the strawberry to give it some shine and dimension.  I cut the leaves and stem out from the second image , colored and used a pop dot to stick them over the leaves on the first image.

I hope you like my sweet card today.  If you would love to play along with the Digi Haven Challenge, they have a great list of sites who offer freebie digis on their blog, so be sure to pop over and take a look and while there check out all the wonderful inspiration from their DT too!

Hi Danie!!! Thank you so much for playing along with us on Digi Haven :o) This card is delicious. I feel as if I can just pluck that strawberry off your card and pop it into my mouth. The sentiment goes along perfectly with this card. Your dp are perfect. ♥Denise @ Digi Haven.
