Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge

Yep, you guessed it! Time for another SPARKS challenge from Paper Smooches. 
 The one thing I have to say about the SPARKS inspiration pieces that Kim picks is that they were all pretty "out of the box"! I love to just sit and study them for awhile to see what crafty stuff I can "see" in them. This is sure no exception.
 I started off with the rose from one of her brand new stamp sets.  I colored it an orange/red to resemble the strawberries.  For some reason, I thought that stamping that zig zag design over it helped it look more like a strawberry!!!
Next, I embossed a piece of kraft colored cardstock to resemble the waffle cones that wrapped up the fruit.  Plus, I placed a circle piece of purple cardstock behind the rose because of the purple plate in the picture.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Oh, how beautiful, Linda! And such a fun and perfect take on that trigger photo! LOVE your embossed "waffle cone" panel,and love the fun zig-zag on the flower. The three pearls are the perfect little touch, too.
