life is a bowl of cherries

Hello, today i have an other card using the “sitting Cherry Tilda” from the new Apple and Cherries Collection. The entire layout of this card came together by the beautiful Webster pages. I loved on this sheet how they printed the text in a square, from there i just had to figure out how i could add some more layers and matching patterns.
Below is a good shot of the text – the leave is cut out with one of Magnolia’s DooHickey Dies / Bon Voyage foliage, i purchase mine over at Sir Stampalot. I sponged it with Vintage Photo and added some gems to it – just to add some sparkle cause i did not use Stickles a lot on this card.

The scallops are made with Spellbinder’s newer sets of big square scallops, the mats have all been hand cut by “moi” :-) Was a bit of work – of course when you want to cut really neat you have to be so careful.

I am not sure if she had time to add those cute charms already to the store site, you might have to wait or sent her an email, before they are all gone. I dressed the butterfly up a bit, with some red gems to tie the colors of the cherries in and on the oval pendant at the bottom i glued a Period green brad (American Crafts). This way i have all my colors tied in with the flowers and embellishments. Oh… Jacque gave me the other day a tip, to tie bows 2x a loop so they would stay puffier longer… tried it with this one.. and i must say, it really does look good.
