Make A Sweet Wish

I have to say when I pulled this week's challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges: Strawberries & Cream, I was for sure challenged. For some reason strawberries throw me a curve. I'm allergic to them in real life so I guess that's why I haven't quite been able to get a handle on them for cards. However, I came across a magazine this week--Paper Craft Inspirations. It's one of the good UK magazines that I can sometimes pick up at JoAnn's. Just happened to have an article by: Jacqui Eccleson making polymer clay strawberries. I got out my heart punch, my tiny black beads, and Amy's Glittering Glue and Wah Lah!  Strawberries! I colored my white button brads with a yellow Sharpie marker a couple of flower punches and some paper flowers appear.
Linda-The Funkie Junkie told me that when I started sewing on my cards I wouldn't be able to quit, she may be right, this card just screamed for some sewing. I hope I improve with practice.
I also have to say my new My Digital Studio software is going to take the place of my trusty PrintMaster11. I made the Certainly Celery circle and inserted the sentiment, printed it out and then cut it out with my Spellbinder Scallop Nestabilities. There's a little bit of a learning curve, but I'm determined to master MDS. 
3 Challenges:
Supplies: White 5 1/2" square card, Papers: CTMH, The Paper Company, Stampin Up, Stampin Up-MDS, Ink: Stampin Up-Old Olive, Making Memories-button brads, yellow Sharpie marker, Spellbinder Nestabilities-Lg.
