Someone Pinch Me!

Hello friends~ I'm here to post some amazing, exciting and super terrific news...
I'll be joining the fabulous design team for Dies R Us!
I literally was so excited when I saw that e-mail in my box, I had to read it three times, just to be sure.

I'm honored and completely humbled by this journey I get to travel for the next six months with Darlene and all the girls. I only hope I can represent their company well.

In celebration of this exciting event, I made a yummy strawberry card to give to someone incredibly sweet!
After die cutting all the pieces to the strawberry, I sponged some color on them using distress inks.

I dipped the chocolate dipped pieces into my VersaMark pad and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder to make them shine like real chocolate. YUM!

I added a trio of little hand made flowers from a Martha Stewart punch with yellow Stickles in the center and a string of bakers twine to finish this off.

Here's my list of suggested supplies from Dies R Us:
Memory Box Postage Rectangle Layers
Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers
Elizabeth Craft Designs Strawberries

Thanks so much for stopping By! Blessings~ Birgit
