Thanks a Bunch Card

Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a fabulous day because I sure am! This is my first post as June Guest Designer at Ginger Snap Scraps!
Ginger Snap Scraps

Today the theme is Fruits and Veggies. So I went with fruits and made this Thanks a Bunch card with my cricut and new papers I got at Ginger Snap Scraps. I cut out the strawberries from the Cricut Preserves Cartridge and wanted them to look a bit more realistic. So with a lead pencil I had lying around my desk I made some tick marks on the strawberries and there ya go, my strawberries have seeds! Pretty nifty, right? I then "filled" my big jar with Candy Cane Stickles so it looks like Sweet Jam. Afterwards, I inked up the whole card with my Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and that's all! It came together pretty quickly but I still think it packs quite a punch! Thanks for stopping by!
