FCCB Challenge #170 - Fruit Salad

It's another Fabulous Challenge Me Monday over at FCCB - Fruit Salad! This week we are challenging you to create a card, project, or layout using any sort of fruit.  So get those Cricut's chirpin'!!!  Here is a video of how I went about putting my card together:
I used Celebrate with Flourish for my YUMMY! Chocolate Covered Strawberry and Mini Monograms for the flower/scallop the strawberry is popped up on. I inked the edges of my awesome new paper (My Mind's Eye Indie Chic) with some Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink. I found some flat back pearls from a Michael's $1.50 bin that worked perfectly and my sentiment, well watch the video to see how that came about :)

The inside of my card I did something a little different. I have never done this before, but I made a little pocket, like you would for a mini album, and a tag from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. There is space for another sentiment stamp on the front of the tag and the back is ready for a hand written note. You could also use the pocket for a gift card or something fun like that! I do like how this card turned out and I am excited to actually give this one away!!! (I find myself hoarding my cards - does anyone else do that?)
And because the papers and colors for this card are some of my absolute favorites, I am going to be linking it up with Whimsical Designs this week.  Hiding In My Craft Room's challenge for the week is Freestyle, and Paper Playtime's challenge is Pattern Paper, so this fits the bill for those too!
