I created this card using Alicia The Strawberry Pirate for the kraft challenge at Kraftin Kimmies Challenges.  The base of my card is red, backed in black and then backed again in kraft.  At the bottom of the card I embossed a strip of kraft cardstock using a swirl embossing plate.  I added a black stitched ribbon to the top of the embossed cardstock.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and cut it out in an oval. The image has a strawberry on the hat and three on the skirt.  I colored in each of the areas with black to cover up the strawberries.  I backed it in red cardstock and used scalloped scissors to cut around the red.  I then backed it in black and then in kraft each time using my scissors to cut the scallops out. I added the image to the card.  I also added a bow under the image.  I finished off the card by adding 3 red rhinestones to each side of the embossed cardstock.
