Card Sketch Tuesday #169 and a sneak peek

Greetings! Here is sketch #169 - measurements are below!

Card base - 41/4 x 5 1/2
1 - 2 1/4 x 5 1/4
2 - Top note die or your choice - 4 1/2 x 3 1/2
3 - 3/4 x 5 1/8
4 - Rectangle nestability or 2 3/4 x 2 1/8
5 - 1 3/4 x 2 1/4

The cherry image is from The Digi Shack and colored with Copic Markers. I used the top note die from SU to cut out the red cardstock. The scalloped black border was done using the new small scalloped die from Papertrey Ink. (awesome die - need to get the other two now!!)

I added a piece of green gingham ribbon to cover the raw edges of panel #1. The green cardstock is from Bazzill. The black, red and kraft cardstock are all from PTI.

I did color two sets of the cherries and painstakingly cut them out and popped them up with foam tape to create that 3D look. Which you can see in the close up picture above.

I have no idea what inspired me with this sketch - besides the colors. I kind of like how it turned out. What do you think?

The Digi Shack re-opens on March 6th, and this cherry image is one of the new designs. Stayed tuned for our design team blog hop, with a few challenges, great images and a bunch of ideas for your viewing pleasure!

Thanks for stopping by!
