CSS Color Combo Challenge Hop

Hi there! We have a color challenge brought to us by Miesje.  Thanks Miesje for this fun challenge.

Create a card or project with the following color combination a non-Christmas red and green card with a neutral color Black, White or Tan. Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, May 28.
 You should have arrived here from super talented  Joy .

It has been so lovely around here with fresh strawberries abound, that I was inspired to pull out Theresa Momber's stamp set "Sweet Strawberries" by Gina K. Designs.





While I was making the first card, I kept thinking how much I would like to have a chocolate covered strawberry. I decided to try and make a card with some. Here is what I came up with. 


Next along the way is ever so talented Cheri . If you want to start at the beginning you can start at Stamp TV here.
Supplies: By Gina K. Designs

Also used: GKD Love Letters and Berries and Vines DP
Spellbinders, Memento and ribbon from my stash.

Hope your week is going well and thanks for stopping by.
