Sweet as Cherry Pie...........

Today I have my Design Team creation for Creative Inspirations Challenge up for your viewing. The colors this week is RED & BLACK... I love this color combo. The Design team has done an outstanding job with the cards. Make sure to stop over and have a look. I hope that you will join us with this beautiful color combo this week.

I have used a cute little Tilda by Magnolia that can be purchased at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. I have colored her with my copic markers and watercolor pencils. I have used my distressed inks to do the background and edges of all papers. I have made this card to look a tad vintage by scuffing up the edges of some of the papers and using my distressed inks on ribbon, dollie and Prima flowers. If you have looked close then you have seen that I spelled You 're wrong on the card. :o( What a dummy I am!!!! I caught it after I took the photos. :o( It is now fixed on the card but to dark to get more photo's so you get to see my boo boo. :o( It made me laugh and I hope it does you too.

Thanks for stopping by today..
Hope you have a great day,
big hugs, janny
