Thank You Berry Much

I was finally able to use my "challenge" stamp set enough to qualify it to be useful and will put back into the collection.  I told myself I needed to make at least 3 cards with the set, using 3 different stamps from the set.  I have succeeded and look forward to challenging myself with the next set.  I have so many stamps and want to make sure I actually USE them.  So this has been a fun challenge for myself.  Which set will I pick next?!

This card was fun to make as I was trying to use this old paper with fruit on it.  I figured since I was using this fruit stamp set that I would be able to use this paper some how.  Well no such luck really.  It was complicated to use, and to be honest, is really ugly.  So when one of the challenges this week was to use "hideous" paper, I thought I will have to use it no matter what!  Turned out pretty good actually, although I don't think I will be keeping the leftovers, they are going to the recycle bin!
Design was based on the sketch from The Sweet Stop, sketch 151.  The stamp set is Stampin' Up!  Sentiment is from "Fruity Phrases" and the strawberry is from "Fruit Medley" (2-step stampin'). Oval was cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge (oval 3, 2" & 2 1/4").


Challenges Entered:
Hiding in my Craft Room - Hideous paper
Tuesday Throwdown - Image outside of frame
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
