Here's what I came up with:
Isn't it stinkin' cute??? I love the bright cheery (or would that be cherry?) colors, the clean look of it. I particularly like the scalloped edge of the sentiment with the brads in the center. I don't always remember to use my brads, and here I think they were quite effective. Have I said yet that I love this card??? I'm giving myself a huge pat on the back here!
I used a bit of crystal effects on the on the cherries to give them some shine. I think it adds a nice finish to the card. Both the images were inked up using markers. It took me three tries until I liked the sentiment, but finally I got there! Funny, I hadn't inked up that sentiment at all yet and have had that set for a good year. And technically, it still hasn't seen an ink pad! Also, I actually 'duded' up the inside of the card:
This might just be one of those cards that stays in my stash for a long time, either that or I need to do another one to give away...I sometimes have a hard time parting with my creations....bad, bad I know!
