A Cherry Hello

I just love this Tart n' Tangy set, don't you? I bought it mostly because I loved it, but also because I thought it would work well with my old Fruity Phrases set. Case in point:



When I started this card, my intent was for it to be a pocket card. You know how it goes though, you get started with one idea in mind and end with something totally different. I still think it turned out cute though, don't you?

And here is a view of the opened card:

I suppose I could have added ribbon or some other bauble to the card, but I thought I'd go easy on the machines at the post office with this one (HA!). I used my brand spankin' new nesties to create the two circles (the scallop is from SU's scallop punch). I've only used the nesties once and I'm already in love! Did I mention I got two more sets tonight at Hobby Lobby? Yeah. I dragged my Mom along so she could get one at a discount too. hee hee. So, now I have the circles, the ovals, and the tags. *happy dance*

Details:
Stamps: Tart n' Tangy (SU!), Fruity Phrases (SU!)
Ink: Real Red (sentiment, sponging)
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Real Red, Summer Fun DP
Other: SU Markers (Real Red and Old Olive on cherry), Circle Nestabilities, Scallop Punch (SU!)
