Wishing you a berry wonderful birthday

I have the adorable card to share with you today! :) All the card layers were made from SCRAPS!! Gotta love that! The strawberries are from the Preserves cart (cut at 2 3/4"). I used a tag from Preserves to create the card base shape.  I welded two tags together and then created two additional layers for the card base.

I inked the layers of the strawberries and the green polka-dot layer before assembling the card. The strawberries are reversed embossed with the swiss dots folder. When I put the berries together, I added the leaves and flower with pop dots and couldn't resist the little green button. I love accenting with the white gel pen, and this card is no exception! :)

I created the sentiment on my computer using the Floral font at 18 points and inked the edges. I used a Fiskers border punch for the white trim and them attached it to the card base with pop dots.

I added some more of the green polka-dot paper (by Heidi Grace) and white border to the inside of the card.
