Embossed on Embossed Strawberries For You

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 279 - Wild Cherry Mist sounds like a cool refreshing drink but turned into near heart failure. This is the 1st time in yrs I have NOT had the colors for the CC and I **gasp** when I saw todays color combo. What to do? So I somewhat CASED Betty's berries from her sample for today by using Flourish's "STRAWBERRIES" set that I just love. I stamped in versamark then heat embossed with black ep. I colored my image and used the blue color for shading around and about my image. After coloring I cut with large scallop oval Nestie and ran that panel through the Harliquen embossing folder in my Cuttlebug machine for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 281 - Embossing on Embossing. My layout is from today's MERCY'S TUESDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE # 82. Shannon shared some new Basic Gray dp with me and to honest I can not even remember which pieces are from which sets but I used 3 sheets. I tied a dark red ribbon around the top and made a bow. I stamped the sentiment in black tuxedo ink. Hope you like it.
