So Sweet Strawberries

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE - Always Real Chocolate. For my layout I used today's FLOURISHES TIMELESS TUESDAY CHALLENGE sketch. I also included Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Outside the Box. I stamped my image in graphite black, cut around the left side then used the Nestie large square to complete the cutting process. I cut a little too close inside so I ended up having to trim all the way around losing my embossing look (insert pout here). Focal image is matted on red then artichoke. My dp panel is from MME stack and the red strip was ran through the cuttlebug with my brand new heringbone folder. Love that CB. I tied some choc grosgrain ribbon around both panels and added a bow on the dp strip. They both are dark brown even though the one on the dp panel looks black.  I need a new camera for Christmas! I stamped the large berry, colored with copics, cut it out and popped it up and covered it with crystal effects. Hope you like it.
