So Sweet and Yummy!! - FCCB #119

Happy Monday Blogger Friends,

It's FCCB time again!!!  This week we were to make a project with any type of summer dessert.  One of my favorite fruits during the summer is STRAWBERRIES!  So, I made a cute card featuring STRAWBERRIES!

I wanted to play with my ELEGANT EDGES cart.  Love the overall effect, but wish it was easier to get the black around the edges.  I had black ink all over my fingers and craft table ... what a mess!!!

Here is a peek inside.  I used red ink on the white mat.  I think it really set the mat off.
