SO Sweet!

I am in LOVE with Dawn's choices for Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #13. I think the combo is gorgeous together, and I plan on using it again soon!

This card came together in a snap. It uses some of my favorite things--cherries, buttons, polka dots, and satin ribbons, not to mention that I love bright red, and Berry Sorbet is my favorite PTI color! I love the way this one turned out...what do you think?

Stamps: Everyday Button Bits
Paper: Certainly Celery, PTI white, PTI dp
Ink: Certainly Celery, Real Red
Accessories: Nestabilities circles & scalloped circles, scalloped edge punch, buttons (Oriental Trading Co.), ribbon (PTI)

Hi Ann, I love cards with cherries on and yours is no exception - it is beautiful. You have such an eye for detail and I like how you have followed the polka dot theme of the leaves with your frame and border. I really wish PTI would get a UK outlet, we are longing to get our hands on these wonderful products!
Have a great day.
