A Cherry Hello

I've had the idea for this card rumbling around in my head for a while but it has just now come to fruition. <insert bad pun groan> My sister gave me a bunch of paper doilies for Christmas so I was excited to be able to incorporate one into this card. I also love the pattern paper in conjunction with the cherry image because it reminds me of a picnic table cloth.  They just seem to go together. The yellow circle layer behind the cherries was impressed with a wood grain texture to give it some added interest. And then there is the sweet little "hello" tag tied on with baker's twine.  I just love this card, it makes me happy! I hope it will brighten someone else's day, too. :)

This is so cute! I love the colors and the picnic mood. Are you sure it wasn't germinating in your head? (Sorry, couldn't resist!)
