Chocolate Covered Sweetness

Today's card is simply sweet:

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made from brown card stock.  The striped mat is cut at 5 3/8"x4 1/8."  The scalloped oval is from "Elegant Edges," and is cut at 4 3/4" (both the regular and shadow layers).  I embossed the white scallop with an embossing folder by The Paper Studio called Quatrefoil.

The strawberry is from the "Sweet Shop" cartridge  It is cut at 2.57."  I embossed the red layer with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I also covered the brown card stock with glossy accents.  I used foam tape to mount the strawberry for some added dimension.

The banner is from "Victorian Romance."  It is cut at 2.12."  I inked the edges of the pink layer with picked raspberry Distress Ink.  The sentiment is from Fiskars and stamped in rich cocoa ink by Tsukineko.  I then added some pink enamel dots to the top right and bottom left corners.

I cut some pink card stock at 5 1/4"x4," and some white card stock at 5"x3 3/4" for the inside of my card.  I then cut a scalloped circle at 2," using "Elegant Edges."  The sentiment from My Craft Spot, the Tasty Treats set.  I stamped it in picked raspberry Distress Ink.

I made this for the following challenges:
BBTB2: favorite Cricut cut (I can't pick one favorite, but I love this chocolate covered strawberry and Elegant Edges is one of my favorite cartridges)
