STAMP SOMETHING SUMMER FUN!!!

Whoohoo, Friday again, and that means time for Stamp Something - this week's challenge is Summer Fun - anything that reminds you of summer and makes you smile!! So, I went with cherries since this is my ultimate favorite fruit and I associate it very much with beach time and snacking - LOL! So , I got out my Tart an Tangy set along with my Summer Picnic DSP and I got to work!! Notice the top square with the bling? That is done with some glue and our fabulous glitter! Then, I cut out the square using my large square punch, layered it with the image stamped on the small square and punched out with the small square punch, and then adhered the square to the inside of the card! The cherries are popped up on dimensionals so it sticks out of the card - much cuter IRL!!! And yes, I used retired ribbon (sorry!) because I am still awaiting my new stash and I am out of so much will all the workshops I have been doing! So, I hope you will forgive me *wink*. The sentiment is from the One Smart Cookie set which I punched out using the Word Windo punch and mounted with a brad. Simple card, but I needed simple after such a busy week - LOL! So, make sure you head on over to the Stamp Something site to see what the other DT gals did - ya know, they are all sooo fabulously talented!!!! Have a fabulous weekend and remember, tomorrow is Scrapbook Saturday so come on back and check out what I did! Smooches!

Cool cherries. Nicely done.

You should leave some background on your pics while editing. It gives them depth. Just a suggestion.
