Bonjour Mon Cheri.........
I was inspired by Curtain Call Inspiration challenge to make today's card.
I loved the glossy Cherry and the pale blue sugar crumbs...
This is my take on the Challenge.....
I stamped the cute cherry's, masked one of them and used a stencil to blend some pale blue ink.
I popped on some clear embossing paste and whilst wet added clear micro beads.
I thought this looked like the sugar crumbs in the photo.
Once the sugar crumbs dried I coloured in the cherry's and added glossy accents.
I added some glaze to the leaves and under the cherry's to ground them and a couple more splats.
I finished off with freehand stitches around the edges, first in black then in white to soften it.
I also made another card....
I was inspired by AAA Cards and Happy Little Stampers Die cutting challenge 
to do this card with a die cut tag.
Same techniques as the first but die cut a tag and popped it onto the card.
I'm not sure the splat should have come out of his head!!!
I had fun with these cards...
Thanks for stopping by.
