SU Summer Design Challenge

Hello folks,
Thought I would share with you today my entry into the SU! summer design challenge.
I took my inspiration from summers, as a kid, going and picking fresh strawberries, still warm from the sun, mmmmmm,
So here is my strawberry basket! All supplies are SU! (and available through me) Tart and Tangy stamp set inked with SU! markers and Short Order Alphabet (On Last chance list with 25%off at mo) for the P.Y.O. lettering. I cut 2cm strips of Kraft card and just made a basic basket shape, then weaved more Kraft card through to finish.

Punches used were Scallop circle, 1+3/8" circle, 1+1/4" circle , Large and small Tag
Well, I didn't want to use mints for the little Strawberries so I used strawberry flavoured chewits instead :0) . Linen thread to attach label.
I shredded paper from the packing SU! use in their parcels as the "Straw" in the basket and a couple of lovely brads to attach the handle from the Hodge podge Hardware set (available in THIS share)
Well that's it, let me know what you think and I would love to see what you made if you entered.
Thanks for looking and have a great day,
Hugs Sarah-Jane xxx
