I "Cherrish" you & me

When Linda and I went to the Swarm we found the cutest stamp there that had cherries on it and said "Cherrish"...OF COURSE WE HAD TO BUY IT! I still don't know why I am cherry crazy but they are just too stinking cute!

Anyway I started this card last night and didn't get to finish since I went to the movies. I went to see Legion and it was really good! But back to the card...I did get to finish it today.

The stamp is a Snag Em stamp and was only $1. The cherry paper is October Afternoon and the polka dot is Bo Bunny. I used a paper piercer to make the stitching look. I have tried the paper piercer before and I kept poking all the way through but I finally got it right! I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the lacy look. The squiggle on the polka dot paper is a Cuttlebug border folder.

The font is Don Juan. The scallop oval is with Alphalicous, but I had to tweak it to fit the stamp.

The ribbon is banana grosgrain and matches better in real life than it does in the picture. I also put the ribbon through the button.

Here is a close up where you can see that I pop dotted the words and scallop oval. I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the words and also used a Stampin Up marker to add stitching on the lettering also. I did use the Signo white gel pen for the zig zag stitching look on the cherry paper.

I guess in my really is a bowl of cherries! HA HA HA
