My Sheri Crafts #089: Picture This!

For our current challenge @ My Sheri Crafts we're asking that you use the inspiration photo below to create a card/project based on what you see in this display! This was sooo much FUN!!! I focused on the large pink/green tray at the center of the top shelf for my card's inspiration. My pink paper resembled the pattern on the tray, plus I also brought in the lemony yellows, as well as the checks and polka dots from the various napkins.

This time of year always makes us think of all the fabulous fresh summer fruits and this photo certainly conjures up many yummy and delicious ideas! I chose this cherry stamp as my focal image because I love the dotted leaves and the variety/colors of buttons you can choose for the cherries.

Can't wait to see what you come up with for this challenge -- please join us @ My Sheri Crafts!!!

Cute card, Marge. Love how you used the buttons as cherries! So creative!

Charlotte said...

This is oh so cute. I did not realize the cherry was a stamp until I read your post. I love the polka dot leaves. It is so cute that you used two different colored and sized buttons. I rally would never have thought to stamp my sentiment in two different colors. Great idea!! Another beautiful project Marge.

Marge, I am so amazed that you even managed to find a quatrefoil background paper to exactly match what was on the inspiration pic! The button cherries are so cute! I love how you mixed the polka dots, gingham check and the scallops together! What a wonderful card!
