A Fruity Flourish

It's that time of year here, when the strawberries are fresh and ready to be picked. I love that time.  There's nothing better than fresh produce.  That's what inspired me to use my Flourishes strawberry stamp today.  I also had the spotlight technique in mind, and it worked well with this image.

All die cuts courtesy of spellbinders, copic markers for coloring, paper from my stash, TH distress ink sponged around the main image, cuttlebug embossing templates, corner piece by seven Gypsies.
