Birthday cherries!

I have done it! All 4 of Jen del Muro's sketches complete, yay!

There is a big prize at stake and you can participate here, but hurry, the deadline is this Friday the 5th.

I needed a few birthday cards, so I have been working on the Lockhart fruit images. I just really love the details in them. For today's card, I paired it with this mini patterned Jenni Bowlin 4 X 4 paper. I like the grey and cream together and the red of the cherries that I coloured with Copic markers and glazed just seem to pop, at least in real life they do!

I really like this sketch as it allows you to really highlight your stamped image. I used the circle Nestabilities and petite scalloped to frame my colander of cherries.

The background texture is a new PaperTrey "Tin Types" texture plate and it's a tad larger than our regular sized cards, and I think that's a good thing! No "border edges" if you choose to make the whole front from one card stock without another card stock border.

Here is a close up of my glazed cherries...don't they look inviting?
Here is the whole card. I haven't yet mastered bows, but I was satisfied with this one.

Thanks for looking and I hope that you are having a good week so far...

  1. Those cherries look perfect for popping in my mouth! Great job on that card - your ribbon is gorgeous and the card is perfect with the texture!
