Shall I or shan't I

I made this card to enter into the new challenge over at Clearly besotted- I was a little undecided ! I love how it turned out but is it more summer than spring but, Spring is when I buy strawberries regular as they just start to come into season, I use them in fruit salads, eton mess and in yoghurt. I love them ! So I do hope you like my card.

I used clearly besotted word stamp, heart punch and flower punch for the stalk and put little dots to make them look like strawberries. The basket is spellbinders.
Thanks for stopping by I really do appreciate it. Have a fantastic good friday xxxx


  1. A gorgeous little CAS design and yes strawberries is definitely a sign of spring.
