Farmer's Market Raspberries



How about another look at the beautiful Kit of the Month at Flourishes - Yacht Club?  I believe there are only a couple of kits left in the store, so I thought I'd try and entice you once again :)


I LOVE raspberries, they are amoung my very favourite orchard type fruit...we have a little patch in our backyard, and when I can keep my kids from stealing them all from me :)... I have them just out my back door!  So this page from the Yacht Club kit looked just like a farmer's market and I love the raspberries spilling out of the basket in the bottom corner.  And it's also such a beautiful Flourishes set, Berry Sweet.  


This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card and I used the very pretty brad and ribbon from the kit too.  Do you like my cute little postage stamp punch?  I stamped the single berry in vanilla ink it.  Coloring is done with Copic Markers and I've added the blue glow around the raspberries too -  to more closely match the feel of the paper.  Isn't that Rectangle Fleur De Lis die  gorgeous?  It adds such elegance!  I did a little out of the box cutting to make it work better as well.  It would be a shame to cut off those pretty blossoms on the left!

A little wonky sewing in there to border up the edges of the paper and it's complete!  

Now for more Friday inspiration you can see the rest of the very talented and wonderful DT

This is so pretty Christine. It makes me homesick. We had a big berry patch in our woods. I would spend hours there this time of year with my dad. Your coloring is fabulous.
