Very Berry Christmas! A new card for My Grafico

Happy Hump Day!
This week at My Grafico we got to work with a fabulous set called Tutti Fruiti!.
I decided to keep with my Christmas theme and I hope it will give you a smile :)

We worked with a super sketch that I tweaked a little to work with a square card.

I found a few challenges along the way.
2 Red Bananas wanted a Christmas/Winter card
Sparkle Creations wanted any Christmas card as did Creative Card Crew
Crafty Cardmakers wanted an "Alternative" Christmas card, I think this one counts! LOL
Ooh La La wanted a Childs Christmas card
ResQ wanted Polka Dots (Alka Seltzer), Circles (Rolaids), Pink (Pepto) and a food elemenet
Digital Tuesday wanted to see Christmas Sparkle
Sunflowers and Dragonflies wanted Polka Dots

I printed out the Strawberry from the set 6 times and colored them. Then I cut them all out put pop dots on them. Once they were on the card (5 on the front and 1 inside) I added Stickles to their cheeks and stem/leaves to match the glttered papers.
The dp is from the Peppermint Forest Stack from Joanns.
The ribbon is Michaels, the buttons are The Paper Studio and the border punch is Martha Stewart Douple Loops.

The inside is more dp with a message mat and another cute Strawberry!

So another "different" Christmas card, I hope it shows you can adapt stamps/images that you already have to fit with lots of occasions, more bang for your buck!
Be sure to check back later for another new card as today is a double posting day.
