Love- Die Cut challenge SOUS

Thank god its Friday, been a long week with us having our spring brake this week.. Most of the people either went up north to ski or down south, towards the sunny beaches.. I on the other hand, stayed put to scrap..LOL
What better way to spend a holiday, right?.. I did work all week, but other than that I spent the rest of my time hidden away in my woman cave..
so, before I get carried away let me tell you about our die cut challenge this week.. our Leah chose LOVE as the theme, being that's its February the month of love..

once again, I apologize for the lighting.. I'm playing around with my camera, trying to get the best photos possible..

I decided to take this card in a whole other direction that just adding hearts, etc.. I wanted it to be unique and fun.. so, I chose the cherries from the Country Life cartridge as my die cut.. Kind of hinting towards the "you are a bowl of cherries!" or "The cherry on top!"..  Then when I looked through the stamps I got from Stephanie, I found the perfect sentiment.. since cherry's usually come in two's, the sentiment "Everything is better with you by my side!" was made for this card..LOL
I took a few close ups:

oh and I did follow a sketch when I made this card.. I found the cutest sketch on Pinterest and this is what it looks like.. You are more than welcome to take the sketch for your own card or you can find it on my Pinterest pinboard..

  1. Cute card Nanne!!! Love the colors and the design!

  2. What a cute card, Nanne .. I love the idea of using cherries along with the Love challenge! Fab design .. hope the weekend is fabulous!!!

  3. Oh I just Love this! Love the papers too, so perfect! When my daughter was little I made her a little sundress with cherries on it and it was her favorite dress (she literally wore it out, lol) and ever since she was little she's had a thing for cherries so this totally made me think of her, she would Love It too! Great take on the challenge and for me it's a whole different meaning of "Love" with your card, lol!
