Cherry on Top Birthday!

We have a great sketch this week over at Create with Connie and Mary!  This is a fun sketch and that is perfect for using some of that beautiful new Designer Series Paper on if you wish!  I used two pieces of DSP from the Cherry On Top Designer Paper Stack:  the banners print and the Bermuda Bay pattern.


I like this new Cherry on Top paper; it's so bright, fun and perfect for celebratory cards.  This card is for a birthday so I used a sentiment from the Remembering Your Birthday set on the right horizontal shape.  I stamped it on Pool Party (which is also in the print but hard to see in this picture) using Watermelon Wonder ink.


Crushed Curry Candy Dots emphasize the top banners and a gold glimmer star embellishes the sentiment.


I wound Gold Baker's Twine around the card front under the sentiment and tied it into a bow; I like the touch of sparkle that it adds to the card!

I see that the Cherry On Top paper was the go to for most of us this week, yet they are all so different! I love how you used the banner paper as the focal square and added the candy dots! Very festive!!!

A great use of the banner pattern to make the focus of your card - this paper really is too good to cover up! Such a fun celebratory card Margaret!

I love the way you let the DSP do the "talking" on this card! Really draws attention to the fun designs!
