Beccy's Place Chocolate Strawberries

I'm so happy with the way this card turned out!  I've had the image from Beccy's Place colored for quite some time but haven't had a suitable sketch/layout.  Until last Wednesday...  I thought Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge #355 was perfect for this. 

The cardstock colors I used are Neenah Red Pepper Linen, Stampin' Up! Garden Green, Nut Brown, Mohawk Bright White & Copic Xpress It.  I wasn't sure what paper I'd used to color on until I took photos and had the card on my computer screen, that's when I can always tell.

I colored the Chocolate Strawberies with Copic markers:  
E57, E35, E33, R59, R46, R35, Wo, B63, B60, YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67

The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink set Signature Greetings, cut out with Spellbinders Ovals and I added three enhanced Dew Drops (E57) for balance.  I forgot to mention when I listed the papers that the striped strip of paper is digital paper that was in my scrap pile so I'm not sure who it's made by. 

Today's card is in memory of my Mom, she's been gone eleven years now & today is her birthday and her favorite color was red.  She would have been 86 years old, I never got to share my card making with her.  She did teach me to sew when I was a little girl though, we spent hours and hours together lost in fabric and patterns - good memories  (:

Love this card, Jan. FAabulous papers! I have the image and haven't even colored it up yet! Now I have some inspiration. :-D Thanks. Fab coloring on the chocolate. I think that's what has kept me from coloring it -- trying to figure out how to do the chocolate effectively.
