Picking Cherries

Challenge #99 Summer - Everybody Art Challenge                                 http://everybody-art-challenge.blogspot.com/

Simon says Challenge Lets get fruity!!  http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/
Challenge #111 - Sketch Saturday  http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/
Challenge #52 Pollycraft Monday Challenge  http://www.pollycraftdesigns.co.uk/
Challenge #4 Craftalicious

For today's challenge I chose an image from Sugar Nellies called "Wind swept".  I used gold and red metallic card for matting and layering.  I embossed some of the layers with a cuttlebug.  I used the polka dots and swirl embossing folders.



The main image was coloured with copics and distressed with a gold brilliance ink pad.  A Martha Stewart corner and edge punch was used to cut border edges.  I added some Star Dust Stickles to her apron and finished the card with a sentiment, pearls and gems.

Thanks for looking, Sharon
