When I think of summer I can't help but think about all of the good fruit that is available to munch on! Strawberries are one of my very favorites so I couldn't resist creating a basket full of the next best thing- paper strawberries! 

Of course these had to be as sweet as the real thing so in each berry I added a small sweet treat or an inspirational quote. So much fun for whover opens the berry!

I cut all of the strawberries from a template that I had and then stamped a variety of  fun and beautiful Paper Wings Productions designs.  Some are stamped in ink, others embossed but they all look good enough to eat!

The berry basket, from Garnish, is decorated with a plaid pattern I created using the front and back sides of the stripes from the Marcel set.  I added a sweet flower border and a pretty little tag.

The card features the same plaid pattern and scalloped borders. I also added a stamped flower background and some ribbon.  The felt flowers on both the card and basket are from Stampin' Up!

There you have it -  my summer fun project for Paper Wings Productions!  Make sure you visit Amber, Norma and Dana next as I know they have beautiful projects to share with you.
