You're Berry Sweet.......{PKS Challenge}

Morning everyone!! 
Hope you are all having a GREAT weekend!!
Well it is time again for another Peachy Keen Stamps challenge and this one is a favorite...but one that actually gave me some is an Anything Goes challenge. 
Difficulty you ask.... give me a sketch and I can try to work with it, give me a color challenge and again I can work with it..a theme, no problem....tell me to make anything I want and my mind goes blank! Yikes!!! I spent a long while looking through my PK stamps and then looking through all my Silhouette files and well I came up with something I hope you will like. 
I made a card and matching 3d strawberry basket using the adorable PK Faceless Fruit stamp set and Fruit Sentiments One set. 

Here is a closer look at the card... I am pretty proud of myself, I used the faceless fruit stamp set and made my own SVG cuts for the images. Yeah I am sure a lot of you know how to scan a stamp set and covert it into a file, but for me it was the first time doing it...LOL!!
So anyways I added the fruit and made a border around the image so when I went and stamped it again, there was a perfect cut around the image. Then using my designer papers I paper pieces the berries. 
And here are the matching berries. These do not have any PK stamps but I thought they would make a cute added treat to my card. They can be filled with some yummy treats as well. I tied each of the berries with some Holly Berry Trendy Twine and used My Creative Time's~Stitched Doily Die to make it look like the basket had a doily liner.

Supplies Used:
Paper~ Kraft, White, Little Yellow Bicycle~Vintage Summer
Stamps~ PKS 
3D Strawberry ~ Silhouette Store
3D Basket~ Silhouette Store
Embellishments~ Trendy Twine~Holly Berry
Sewing Machine
