A bowl of peas

Hey there! 
With so many new stamps hitting the store this month it's already review preview day over on the ATS blog. Last week I had fun inking up Bee-trice so today my card features the other just as adorable Strawberry Beatrice. She is the berry sweetest don'tcha think?

This card is another case of knowing exactly which paper I wanted to pair up with an image as soon as I laid eyes on her. Sure, there are a lot of prints from the Crate Pretty Party papers that I just love but this strawberry pattern is my absolute fave of the bunch. So I colored up Beatrice to match the little vintage looking strawberries and started to lay out the card design. But when it came time to complete her story with fun embellishments I got a bit stuck. Nothing new was coming to me so I thought it best to go ahead and get a sentiment on there at least. That's when I found this gem in the Berry Logos set that gave me just the direction that I needed. I know that using pearls isn't much of a change for me but I do think that they make cute little peas scattered down around her feet. :)     

Ok, there is even more review preview fun and inspiration from my fellow ATS teamies on the All That Scraps blog so be sure to hop on over there too! And all of the new May stamps can be found in the ATS store here!

Amy this is so so so sweet! I just love strawberries and I think you have found the best paper and the cutest little girl to put together for this very sweet card. I love how you colored little Beatrice and I love this crate paper paper. I hope you had a great day today. We had lots of sunshine and I found out that Maddie was in the paper last night for being on the honor roll.. We are very proud of how far she has come this year. Mitchell has too, but it takes him a little longer and a little harder work than her. He'll get it next year. :O) Hugs, Lisa
