PTI's 10th Anniversary Celebration: 2016

2016's stamps, dies and card stock colors were glorious! 
More of their signature style, and release after release of 
irresistible sets!
Looking back at the Christmas release, I think it was their best ever!
Back to the challenge. 
One of the sets featured was this one I chose to ink up, Just Desserts.

Strawberry season in the Central Valley is celebrated like a holiday! 
There are local stands everywhere, and strawberry shortcakes, pies, pizzas,
desserts and jam is commonplace in homes and restaurants.
So this card is an ode to the strawberry! 
Doubled the strawberry dies and piled them high on my cake!
It could be a birthday card, or a celebration of an anniversary,
if I need it to be. But truthfully, my mouth is watering for the day
the local strawberries are ripe enough to pick and enjoy!

Just Desserts
Paper Clippings: Happy Day
White Embossing Powder
Cardstocks: Dark Chocolate, Mint Julep, 
Mint Julep + White Basics,
Vintage Linens
