Sweet wonderful you

Hello everybody!

I came across another card that you may have already seen on the ATS blog during previews last week. But since little miss Pie Birgitta hadn't made it up here yet I figured today would be her day. :)

This sweet new image from CC Designs is just darling and I'm thinking she'll also prove to be quite versatile as well. I can already see her going on a cute Thanksgiving card or even Christmas... but I'm getting ahead of myself, LOL! Since we are still enjoying sunshine filled summer days I decided to have Birgitta make a classic cherry pie. And to help sell that vibe I decided to pair her up with these cool, kinda vintage looking papers from Jenni Bowlin. For some reason that cherry print reminds me of the curtains that used to hang in my grandma's old kitchen back when I was a little one. So no surprise really that I liked them with this baking themed stamp.
I also got uber creative (at least for me, LOL) and cut the one side of the card shorter with a decorative edge, allowing the inner panel of paper to show a bit and I also thought it was cool to pair that leaf stick pin with the red bead charm... looks a bit like a ripe cherry don'tcha think? ;)
Anywho, I love how warm and sunny this card turned out. In fact, I can practically smell the baked fruit right now. That Birgitta, what a baker she is!

Alrighty I've gots to get ready for work now... TTYL! :)
