Marvelous Cherries

Friday, March 29, 2013

Hi Friends! I have to leave for an appointment in 15 minutes, so this will be really quick.
I used Sketch Saturday #251 for my card design, and the colors from Color Throwdown #235. The cherries, from the Flourishes Peaches & Cherries stamp set, were colored with Copics, and I sponged Distress Ink inside the die cut. It's lifted slightly with 2 layers of crimped cs. The quote was heat embossed, and to the left of that I used an embossing folder to give that blank space some interest. I scored the banner flag across the top and along both long sides. I zigzagged the two pieces of dp that make up the bg, and also the top of the flag. 

The inside is more simple than I like, but I'm in a hurry, so I'll have to gussy it up later. ;)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
