Here's my card for this week's kick-off celebrAtion!The challenge was to use an image from the above set and the colors RED, PINK, and GREEN. I printed the large cherries on some white cardstock then red and then again on green. I cut out the cherries and the leaves from the red and green cardstock. Then, I ran the leaves thru the Cuttlebug with the circles embossing folder. Then, I paper pieced the cherries and leaves. I added some Glossy Accents to the cherries to shine them up a bit. The cake was cut using my Cricut and the Wedding Solutions cartridge. The drippy icing is a Martha Stewart border punch. I added a bit of Stickles to the scalloped parts of the cake. I also used a Martha punch on the green border and ran that thru the Cuttlebug as well using the Swirls folder. I added a rub-on, a computer generated sentiment and a cute little flower/ribbon brad. Easy peasy!! I love the MyGraphico digi images because they are so, so cute AND so easy to work with.
