Aimoobaroo Inspiration Challenge

How fun is that name, "Aimoobaroo"? Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose from many different fabric buttons from the Etsy store called "Aimoobaroo".
It's my step-mom's birthday this week, so I chose these buttons as inspiration for her birthday card. Since the weather has turned toward winter, I thought something cheerful and "summer-y" would be a great idea....what says summer more than strawberries? I paired up Basic Grey "Nook and Pantry" paper with ODBD's "Happy Birthday" stamp set and my new Martha Stuart Flower Bed border punch. Today at Christian Paper Crafts, my dear friend, Marcelle, who blesses us with the Daily Bread devotionals each week, is the featured artist. (Her daughter, Rebecca, is in the hospital with some serious issues due to diabetes....please pray for her safety and recovery.) I chose this beautiful card from Marcelle's gallery to case. For this card, I also used Betty's Color Challenge at SCS to use red, artichoke, and chocolate. A new challenge site I just discovered, called "Color Throwdown"...I love this site..I will be playing there often!! Their color challenge this week is ALSO red, green, ivory, and chocolate!!
BTW, I DID cut out all of those little strawberries by hand, then covered them in Ranger Glossy Accents! The corner accents are the punch-outs from the border punch, also "glossed up"! (DH said to me, "You don't waste a thing, do you?" He's so cute!!!)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Stay tuned Monday for another post to showcase Unity Stamp Company, our sponsor this month at Christian Paper Crafts! God Bless!!
