Strawberry Thank You

Another card using a resurrected stamp set (Hopefully I'll have new catalogue cards to show you soon). I love Tart & Tangy and was so happy to see it make the new catalogue! I was sad however to lose the Summer Picnic DSP that matched :( ... But I decided to make the best of a sad situation and use it as an opportunity to try out new colour combinations with the set. Before I had always just stuck with the DSP combo's of Bashful Blue, Real Red, Old Olive & Pumpkin Pie, so I thought with this card that I would soften it up and use Pretty and Pink with Certainly Celery for the strawberry and the rest just came from there.
To keep with the soft feel when I stamped the sentiment in Close to Cocoa I stamped off onto scratch paper first so that the colour wasn't as dark.
Stamps: Tart & Tangy, Think Happy Thoughts
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Close to Cocoa
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, Whisper White
Accessories: 1 1/4", 1 3/8" and Scallop Circles & Scallop Edge Punches, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink 1/4" Grosgrain, Certainly Celery 5/8" Grosgrain

When I first looked I didn't see the strawberry hiding in the greeting - great card.
