Thanks Berry Much!

Hi Everyone! 

I was going to wait until tomorrow to share this card, but we have a snow storm coming with the possibility of power outages.  Woo for snow, boo for no power...! 

Anyways, I wanted to play along with the latest Lawnscaping Challenge: Texture. 

So here's my card: 

As soon as I saw this jar, I thought the ants from Happy Summer should be walking out of it with food in tow!  I started the card by making clouds in the background with Tumbled Glass distress ink.  I added the sun and clouds from Sunny Skies, added color with copics, some shadowing with stickles, and used one of my Lifestyle Crafts embossing folders to add texture to the clouds.  I then created a little background with the trees from Let It Snow and the house from Home Sweet Home.  The foreground includes the jar and strawberries from Summertime Charm.  I layered vellum and acetate to make the jar (like Yainea showed us how to do) and placed the strawberries in between the layers.  The strawberries are colored with copics, die cut with the matching Lawn Cuts dies, and covered in glossy accents for even more texture!  I then created a little ant trail walking away with the goods. 

Lastly, I created a banner for the sentiment and placed it on foam tape for more dimension--it's what I would imagine an ant to say as he walked away with found fruit... 

And there are a few more hours for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes, so I'll be entering that too. 

Thanks for stopping by!
