Wonderful Word Art Wednesday

It's Wednesday again, and time for another great challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  As always, we have two amazing sponsors for our challenge - a sponsor with a physical prize, and a digital sponsor.  Our sponsor for the physical prize is the AMAZING and adorable Shoppe 3130.  They carry all sorts of sweet items for wedding receptions, crafting projects and more.  One lucky person will win a special prize (description on Word Art Wednesday blog).  It's certainly a fabulous prize worth playing for, and it will be a real treat to whomever is lucky enough to win it.  Our digital sponsor is The Cutting Café, and this is one SUPER FUN shop as well.  They carry the sweetest SVG files and digital stamps; and SO many unique items that you don't find at your average digi shop.  It's SO unique, and well worth checking out.  Both prizes are amazing, so it's another great week to play along.  You can share any projects (up to five per week) as long as they're family friendly and meet our challenge guidelines.  We look forward to having you play along with us, and seeing your art.
I made several cards for this week's challenge because I wanted to showcase these darling Berry Baskets from Shoppe 3130.  They look like the old-fashioned berry baskets from days gone by, and they're just adorable.  This particular berry basket is a teal colored quart-sized basket, and it can be used in so many different ways.  I filled mine with a variety of hand-made cards that I tucked inside.   This first card (below) is the card I created using this week's word art/scripture file that I printed onto cream paper and cut into a tag shape, inked, and added a button, some baker's twine, seam binding, and flowers.
My next card (below) was made for a friend's daughter who is soon turning 4 years old.  It uses primarily Crate Paper Pretty Party supplies.  I also used some sweet ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I also made a card for a friend in Minnesota who just had her first grand-daughter who is named Aurora.  I added her name to a tab on the right side with rub-ons, and I know she will cherish it.  It uses a Prima flair, lace, seam binding, and rub-on sentiments.  She loves personalized items, so I know this will be a special gift for her.
And I didn't stop there.  I have even more!  I made this next card using some Carta Bella Sew Lovely papers, ribbons, a rub-on sentiment, a wooden heart with glitter, and machine stitching.  I love how the colors match the Berry Basket.   That was kind of the theme I was going for here.
And finally, last but not least, I create this last card based on the inspiration challenge at Classy Cards 'N Such.  I love using banners, the seam binding bow, a rub-on sentiment, machine stitching, and got to implement lots of fun October Afternoon patterned papers.
I hope you've enjoyed my little collection of cards that I created to fill this lovely Berry Basket, and I really hope that you will stop by to play along with us in this week's challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  I'm always SO grateful for the art you share with us, and this is a great week to play along for the chance to win some fantastic prizes.
I'm sharing some of my cards in these challenges:

  9. You do LOVE bright color..! I love the one with the flag banner. Reminds me of the days when I was a little girl back in the late 1940;s for some reason. And the little bitty stamp is a charmer; another idea I will keep in my mind for my own use... if you don't mind?
