Cherries....

Hey there!!! Sunday is here and it seems our cold, windy and rainy weather has abated some!!   I have a card today for the current Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge to use red on your card.  The layout comes from the current Cardabilities sketch, which I chose to make vertical instead of using it horizontally as it is shown.   I really like the Cardabilites sketches, but unfortunately have not been able to play along with them as much as I would like.



For my card I used the Flourishes set Peaches & Cherries.  It was the first set that came to mind when I saw the challenge and it also fits in with the current Shabby Tea Room challenge to use cherries on your project.   I stamped the cherries in Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and colored them with my Copic markers.  The image was then trimmed out.  The patterned papers used are from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 2 Rosy collection.  Everything was layered and adhered to a light green card base.  It took me forever to figure out what I would make the little bow out of before settling on some May Arts twine.  The sentiment from the Flourishes set Gerbera Daisies was stamped on a tag that was die cut using the PTI Tiny Tags die.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! & PTI; Stamps:  Flourishes; Copic Markers; May Arts Twine; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Papers:  My Mind's Eye; Wilton paper doily

Love this Rosemary! I live close to Traverse City which is known for its cheeries. This card reminds me of the all the trees blossoming with the delicious fruit.

Love every single detail on this card Rosie, from your cut-out Cherries to your wonderful Bg of My Minds Eye papers, you threw me a curve ball when you added the doily Rosie, was it to confuse me?......... I am always so aware of your CAS mindset, that I was surprised when I saw this added layer/element, because that is what I would have done!
