Strawberries and gingham

I just got this adorable new set of strawberry stamps a few weeks ago and decided to ink it up.  I was at a crop at a local scrapbook store and was the only one stamping, LOL.  I'm guessing that they don't get many stampers there because there was much interest in things like Copics, unmounted stamps, etc.  And the tables were the long white plastic ones from warehouse stores that are NOT good to stamp on.  I thought my stamp was defective the first 4 times I tried to stamp and couldn't get a decent image.  So I had to use the countertop that they keep the die cutting machines on to stamp.  Oh well, I had fun and met a lot of new people. 
Anyway, on to the card.  Stamps are from Flourishes, gingham paper is from a stack, Citronella, I believe, ribbon is generic from the Offray outlet, green cardstock and buton are New Leaf from PTI.  The Copics pictured are the reds that I used on the strawberries. 
I showed this card to DH and got stellar praise from him.  He said "Oh, that's so adorable!" instead of his usual "That's cute, dear."  I plan to make a few sets of these to give as Christmas gifts to friends and relatives.  I couldn't find a good place on the front for a sentiment, but I don't think it really needs it.  It seems to stand alone okay to me. 
Thanks for looking!
