Strawberries & Cream

I found another new (to me) challenge today. Allsorts. I remember Dad talking about allsorts (a licorice candy). Here it has a double meaning. The licorice is on the header but it also means all sorts of papercrafting. The challenge for this week is "Strawberries & Cream". You do not have to use strawberries, just the colors of red, green (stems), brown and cream. I took the liberty of lightening the red in some spots to pink.

My first thought at the theme was the Phindy's Place digi of the mouse on the strawberry cake. The paper is from Cardmaker Creative Pack. The 3mm pink pearls and the large red brads are from Paper Wishes. Besides the Allsorts Challenge I am also entering this card in the Phindy's Place Challenge for a birthday card. What is a birthday without cake??

I slept a couple of hours today and did some more organizing, well, a little more, so I didn't get as many cards made. There is still time this evening and tomorrow. I hope to have most of the scraproom moved by the end of the week. Don't hold me to that.
