Strawberry Gazebo for Spring Project

I am entering this project in Cards TV Spring Challenge at  It is a fabulous free svg file from  I did need to resize as a group to get the gazebo to the size I wanted.   I decided to dress up the gazebo so I used a vine from one of the Create a Critter cartridges and a strawberry from Paisley as it was simple and no shadow. I had to cut the strawberry at such a small size that it lost its definition and kind of faded up against the gazebo. So I did a copy and paste of the strawberry, changed one to write only, used a black American Crafts pen and placed it as closely on top of the cut one as I could manage. I can't remember if I welded or attached the two. The Edit feature wouldn't allow it to be an exact placement but it was close. And in this case, it didn't make a big difference since it was such a small image. The white flowers are from a hole punch I bought at WalMart absolute eons ago. Yellow stickles in the centers of the flowers makes them pop a little bit. Glued several of the vines together, placed the strawberries and flowers, wrapped around the gazebo and presto... I love using the Cricut Explore for my Cricut cartridges, SVGs and designs.  Not only does it cut great, I love the writing feature!
