Hey there, ever since My Favorite Things came out with the Berry Box die, I've wanted to create a basket filled with strawberries and a matching card.  This project was so much fun to make and I love the way it turned out!

I found the perfect stamp from Penny Black called Sweet Day.  Isn't she adorable?  Two techniques (see below for links) were used on this card:  out-of-the-box with a Nestie and paper piecing.  She was colored with Copic markers and the paper pieced dress was also colored for a little extra depth.  All of the flowers/leaves are MFT dies.

Here's the inside...

I ran across this super cool basket while I was checking out Pintrest and it turns out Rachel from The Little Blue Room shared an awesome tutorial.  It can easily be made in three different sizes (I made the middle size).  Each of the flaps and handles were sponged with Memento ink and the strawberries are ready to hold your favorite sweet treat or maybe even a little cash.

Copic coloring:

Skin:  E02, E01, E00, R30  Hair:  E47, E44, E43, E42  Dress:  Y26, Y23, Y21, 0  Flip flops:  R29, R27, R24, R22  Strawberries:  R29, R27, R24, R22, YG25, YG23, YG21  Flowers:  R08, R05, R02, Y17, Y15, Y11  Grass:  YG25, YG23, YG21  Sky:  BG70
