Cherry ripe

This card uses the current Forever Friends sketch - one condition is to use FF items - I haven't used any of the bears, but the flowers and sentiment are FF products:



This is also for:

Cuttlebug spot: 'let's get fruity' (I used a cuttlebug embossing folder)
Die cuts R us: 'emboss something'
Just us girls 7: embossing
Lots to do 46: 'embossing'
Corrosive 38: 'let's emboss something'
Tuesday taggers: 'no patterned papers'

The Petaluma cherry stamp has been coloured with copics. Gems are from Poundland and ribbon is Papermania.

Incy wincy 17: 'thank you'

Autumnal scene

There are still quite a few autumnal challenges around atm, as well as those that cater for preparing us for Christmas.

This card is for:

Pile it on
23: fall challenge: use a leaf or leaves (the idea of 'Pile it on' is to find other challenges that can be done at the same time. So here are the rest:

Hope stamps eternal: cupcake inspiration 33, with this picture:


The card is an invertage one (opposite of decoupage), although even taking the photos at an angle don't really show the depth of layers as they are irl. To give a clue as to the depth: the sentiment had to be built up with five layers of foam tape on the bottom half that stuck directly on the card blank.
