Razzleberry Delight

Hello! It's Saturday and time for another awesome sketch from The Sweet Stop! I won't admit to how much time i spent on my card this week though, I wanted to use 3 different dp's and just couldn't come up with a combo I liked so went with a solid cs panel for the long narrow strip. Do have a little tip for you though. If you ever mess up while embossing your colored diecut image (slipped in the die and was very off center) just run your image thru a CB folder and you won't have to trash all your hard work. My image this week is water colored, need to do this more often! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
