Sweet Dipped Birthday!

Happy Sunday All!!! It has been a great week here! I got to harvest my first batch of Green Beans from my garden and yesterday one of my chickens laid her first egg! So I rewarded them today with a bunch of fresh fruit since its muggy outside and it will help keep them hydrated :) !! Hope Everyone has had a great week also!!

So the other day I was in a crafty mood and wanted to make a few cute shaped birthday cards.. So I made 2 almost exactly alike but The first one turned out so nice I couldnt help but do a second one :)

I am entering these cards in the following challenges:
Little Scrap Pieces : Fun Friday Challenge Anything Goes
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog: Challenge Me Monday #119 -Yummy Yummy!
Celebrate The Occasion: Challenge #70 : Happy Birthday
Cooking with Cricut : #94 I Feel The Love Challenge
The Cricut Chirp Challenge - 2 - Too Sweet To Eat
3 Girl Jam: Bow Link Up Party

So these were so simple but I just LOVE how they turned out!!
So I started out with the Sweet Shop Cartridge on my Gypsy and welded 2 of the strawberries together , I cut that piece out on white cardstock so that the inside would be white. Then I cut another Strawberry in Red textured paper and then the leaves in a very light green textured paper. For the dip I used a light tan piece of cardstock and used Tim Holtz Ink Vintage Photo around the edges to give it a little depth.
I also embossed the strawberry with the cuttlebug dots folder and ran some black ink over it to make it look like the little black spots on a real strawberry :)
The bows are made with Crinkle Ribbon from 3 Girl Jam
The Sentiments are from K Andrew Designs

<3 Until Next time!!!
