A Bright Cherry Hello!

 Just wanted to show off a card I made for no-one in particular.

I got my sketch inspiration from Taylored Expression Sketch Challenge #140.
 I wanted to use a SU set, that I recently bought, called Tart & Tangy.  I knew I wanted to use the orange slices as part of a card and add glitter to the inside.  I used my Stickles for that.  You probably can't recognize the cherry stamp from the set.  I used two little red buttons and my Martha S. leaf punch to vamp it up.

Katlin's Fathers Day Card

 Katlin is my youngest daughter's BFF.  They are inseparable and she is a great girl.  I was bored today and decided to make a Father's Day card for her to give to her dad.  Looking through my challenge blogs I really love the sketch from The Sweet Stop Sketches Challenge #111.  It is simple but perfect for the idea I had.

 Then I started looking for a good color combo.  Not to crazy or girly colors, it is a card for a man after all.  Wanted to make sure the colors were manly and The Color Q Challenge #88 had the perfect combo.

 So what do you think.. I really like the extra touch I put in the bow - the golf tee.  Had to dig through my golf bag for that one.  I colored the golfer with my Copic and the stamp set is from SU.
