The other week, I posted my work desk picture with assorted fruits and some pretty pink Chantilly paper spread out across it. I couldn't show the card I was planning because I was going to submit it to Take Ten magazine. But before I put it in the mail I took another look at it and realized that it wasn't quite good enough. I had some stray embossing powder all over the front that I didn't catch.
I used the design challenge that was in the Summer 2013 Take Ten magazine.
The main layer is the sweetest Chantilly pink. I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the CTMH Sweet Life set right on that layer.
I used the Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut the CTMH cotton candy pink border, and fussy-cut one edge of a Buttercup strip to layer underneath it. On the other edge I used a petite scallop border punch.
I had colored the fruits from the Sweet Life set several days prior and I used a round punch to frame the cherries and inked the edges with cotton candy pink. The ruby cardstock shape was also cut on my Cricut using the Artiste cartridge. A couple of coordinating ribbons - one for a border and one for a bow - finished the card.

  2. Thank you! I thought I had blown it with the inking on the white circle, but it didn't look too bad, I guess. Thanks for visiting!

  3. Oh, I love those cherries, Dawn. Great coloring! Nice ribbon, too!
