The Last of the Strawberries!!

I adore this stamp set, Strawberries, from Flourishes!! It is so fun to color and I love the bright red with the greens...This is for a challenge issued by Silke on the Flourishes Newsletter to make a card using score lines. Mine are on the left and the bottom of the card. The little prima is part of a very large one I took apart, then sewed a button from the PTI collection to the center. After I had put my card together, I decided the corners looked a little bare, so I added this vintage lace.
Now, let me introduce you to my favorite stamping tool, it is called: un-du. It is an adhesive remover usually found in the glue section of hobby or stamping stores. I use this a lot, it removes residue by just pouring a little bit on, and your glue comes right off! In this case, I was able to lift both corners of my card to insert the red lace. Pretty wonderful, in my opinion!!

Thanks for looking, and this may be the last of the strawberries, but I sure have loved using them.
The copics used to color these were:
R43, R46, R59, R20, Y21, YR 24, YG17 and G99

You can visit the Flourishes blog newsletter for more information on their products and challenges:
