Just Buggin Challenge #22: "Berry Sweet" Card

This week's challenge (#22) over at Just Buggin is called "All About Food": make a food-themed project.  Here is my Design Team card:
I used 3 Bugs In A Rug patterned paper (green polka dot) for the mat on this one and added random dots of green glitter glue for sparkle.  Using Winter Wonderland, I cut the scallop circle out of hot pink and the shadow out of white cardstock.  I added pink glitter glue for sparkle.  I ran a striped ribbon (American Crafts) around the card base, attached the scallop circle and then adhered the mat to the green card base.

I wanted a strawberry die cut and didn't have one on the cartridges I own, so I made my own!  I used Street Sign to cut the "body" of the strawberry from red cs using the "interstate sign" cut.  Then I used Doodlecharms to cut the "palm tree top" from green cs and placed it on top...looks like a strawberry to me!  :)  I added glitter glue to make the "seeds" and for the lines on the leafy top.

To finish, I printed the sentiment onto white cs, matted it with red cs and adhered with foam dots.
Thanks for looking!  :)
