Basic Grey Challenge Sweet Cherry Card

This card is for the bi-monthly Basic Grey Challenge. I love the new Lemonade paper by Basic Grey. I thought it would go great with fruit or other country looking images. I used a dabber to sponge the background of the cherries after I cut it with a Nestabilities die. The little pink flower is hand crocheted and the silver metal embellishment on top is a flattened bead cap. Underneath there is a small Prima flower and a MM rhinestone brad holds it together. The tag is a Cuttlebug die.

Stamps: Fabulous Fruits
Paper: Basic Grey Lemonade, Purely Pomegranite, Kiwi Kiss, white
Ink: Baja Breeze, Rose Red, Baroque Burgandy, Kiwi Kiss, Always Artichoke
Accessories: ribbon, brad, bead cap, crocheted flower, Prima flower, MM Brads, dimensionals, Nesties
