Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

I just couldn’t resist, so here I have another strawberry card.  These layering strawberries from Strawberry Jude Stamps are the best.

This was a fun card to make, and I am pleased with the way it turned out.  I’ve had chocolate-covered strawberries on my mind to make a card for since Valentine’s Day.  Right now, while there are no holidays or birthdays to rush about for, I should make some REAL chocolate-covered strawberries!  Especially since strawberries are coming in season.  Now that’s a thought.  Hmmmm….

Thanks for joining me,

Tricia
