paper dolls #47 - cheery cherries

Today I'm playing along with a fresh & fruity challenge over at the Paper Dolls blog (link here).  Looks like we're waiting for summer ripe cherries!  I used Karen Hughes' 3rd sketch in Papercraft's Go-To Sketches #1, p. 64 - a circle element with sentiment strip & scalloped far edge.  

I used Basic Grey Lemonade papers to make a quilt with zigzag stitch stamping from PTI Button Boutique. There's a sentiment from Quilter's Sampler inside (can't quite remember which...). :)

This homespun feel called for a special banner so I gave it some love.  It's hard to see, but I kissed the edges of the polkadot leaves with new leaf ink to give a little definition.

Hope your day is sweet & special!

All of those different bright and cheery patterned papers you chose to create the "quilt" on the background are just awesome! And I love that curly banner :)

Fabulous sewing on your patchwork card! The colors are so fruity to me and those cherries, just too much fun! Great card!

What a fun card. I love the patchwork quilt you created. I didn't realize there was a zig zag stitch stamp in that Button Boutique set. Now, I'll want to use it on everything.
