You're Berry Special

Couldn't pass up this cute House and Mouse Stamp and decided to use it for Three Amigo's BlogHop Challenge #1 "Nom, Nom"  using The Paper Players Sketch Challenge #382, but turned to landscape.  

Each of the panels were cut to size and then using the using the Elizabeth Craft Designs "Dashing Rectangles" centered them inside to cut the stitching on three of the sides and then centered it again on the fourth side and die cut just on the stitch.  

I stamped two of the image, colored the full image with Copic alcohol-based brush pens, fussy-cut the strawberry from the second image, colored and then layered on top of first image with 3D thin foam tape.  Gave great dimension to the strawberry but it didn't photo well.
