Thank You Berries

This is one of those cards that looks (and is) so simple, but it took me forever to make. I had to step away and come back later twice. But now I'm pretty pleased with it. I used several of the challenges from this weekend's Dare To Get Dirty extravaganza on Splitcoast Stampers, including one of the sketches. If you're a Fan Club member, you can play along too.

Design note: I colored the pearls to match with a B05 Copic markerWhat's In It?
Stamps: strawberries (Lockhart stamps), green thumb (PTI) Paper: real red, caribbean, artichoke (SU), white, spring moss (PTI) Ink: artichoke (SU), black (memento), chamomile (PTI) Copics: R20, R24, R29, YG91, YG95, YG99, B00, B02, B05, W3 Other: score pal, spots and dots (CB), ribbon (may arts), pearls (Mike's), square and scalloped nesties (Spellbinders), pop dots, white gel pen, corner rounder
