Berry Thank You

It's time for another Skittles challenge over at DoubleClick Connections.  I hope you're as excited as I am for this challenge.  This time it's all about something juicy - fruit.  Yep, it's that simple.  Create a project that features fruit and you're golden.
 
For my project I chose to use this great strawberry shaped card from the Hello Kitty Cricut cartridge. To add some texture to the card I chose to emboss the berry portion.  Then I added a couple of the Grinch Green skittles at the top of the stem.
 
On the inside of my card I wanted to add a stamped sentiment so I cut a shadow of the strawberry just a tad bit smaller than the card.  I removed the stem and then inked with some red color. 
 
The sentiment is actually from two different stamp sets:
 
Count Your Blessings from Card TV Stamps and Say it Big from Craftin' Desert Divas
 
And now that you've seen my take on this challenge be sure to check out the other wonderful designs our team created for you.  Then after you've been amply inspired, create your own project and link up with us for your chance to win a set of skittles.  You have until September 2nd to play along.
