June 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative for #FMS540

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by Jen M's neat sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  Please click on either my card or the #FMS540 image to visit the challenge and give the sketch a try!  I used the stamps from the June 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Pick Of The Crop, I love the size of the 'Hello' sentiment and the realistic look of the strawberries.

Assembly & Trix:

*  There's no Trix, wait, yes use the Stamparatus™ to stamp the Hello on the Abstract Beauty Notecards, #158050 to get a nice dark black image.  *FYI the Notecards are retiring at the end of June.  A link to the Last Chance List is at the end of the post.

*  Stamp the strawberries using Memento Black Ink, colour with Sweet Sorbet & Parakeet Party Stampin' Blends Markers & fussy cut out.  Adhere one with glue and the other with dimensionals.  

***Trix add a bit of Wink Of Stella to the edge of the berries, like the sunlight might glisten off a fresh picked berry,  Embellish the card with gems & jewels as you wish.
