Cherry on top

I made this card today for Taylors cupcake challenge (tecc19). When I saw the sketch I thought it would be perfect for the small images in tart and tangy. Looks like a pretty simple card right?!?!LOL! Not today! It took me over 2 hrs to make this card. I have no idea why! The main prob was the sentiment. I decided to use this sentiment and printed it out on my computer that took 5 times to get right! Im pleased with how my card turned out though. I guess when youre finished with a card thats all that matters right?!!? This card will definetly go to someone special though since I had such a hard time with it!LOL!

I love the summer picinic dps. I didnt like them at first b/c Im not a big fruit/veg image lover. My mom and MIL always tried to buy my kids clothes with watermelon, cherries, etc on them and I hated them. Well this year Madison swimsuit has apples on it. Its so cute! Great colors! I have an inspiration piece in the works so stay tuned for that.

I finally broke down and bought the bashful blue and real red striped grosgrain ribbon after I fell in love with the pumpkin pie striped ribbon. I have no idea what Im going to do w/out my in color double stiched ribbon!LOL! I think Ive used it on just about every card Ive made!LOL!

Okay Im through I said the card is pretty simple. I used my SU markers to ink up the cherry and stamped onto PTI white. I still got a few blotchy looking areas so I went over it with my blender pen and smoothed it out. I noticed while my card was loading that when I did that I blended over the white part of the cherry so I went back and added it w/my white gel pen so for now just imagine the little white highlight!LOL! I added an outline to my image using the copic cool gray no. 1 and went over the cherries with crystal effects so they're super shiny!

We're off to the kids VBS program tonight after soaking up the sun today! Have a great day!
