My Sheri Crafts Challenge #89 - "Picture This"

This was a very fun challenge at MY SHERI CRAFTS this week!!  I just LOVE the picture that Sandy of the DT took on a recent visit to Hobby Lobby!  What a great inspiration piece!?!
I think it's pretty obvious that I did a very "literal" translation of the photo - LOL!!  This digital image is from WHIMSIE DOODLES "Sentiment-edibles" collection.  When I saw the inspiration photo, I immediately thought of it!
I printed the image and colored with my COPICs and drew some stitching around the edge using my Spellbinders Classic Circle, after cutting it out, as a template for those perfect lines.  I then layered with Pinking Circles and Eyelet Circles.  The background is embossed with Spellbinders Regal M-Bossabilities and sanded to show the detail of the embossing better.
A bold ribbon was tied across the bottom and a scrap piece of lace added to soften the look.  I just LOVE this silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store....one of my FAVORITE things!!  I hope you can find time to join us for this challenge and share YOUR version of this inspiration photo!

Sheri, I just LOVE this card! Love the embossing you did in the BG! It set this card off, and everything else just went along perfect! Gorgeous bow too! :)

Just LOVE this vibrant, FUN card and especially how perfectly that BG embossing folder matches the pink/green trey on the inspiration photo!!! Came really close to using that ONE folder I have too, until I found the pink paper to use instead!!! ;~)

Sheri,
first I have to tell you how much I like the sanded background. I have never done that but have always liked the look. So I plan on sanding some embossing very soon. Your image is so cute and colored perfectly. What a great idea to have such a pretty bow and ribbon. It just drew me into the card. I love it!

Sheri, I thought for a second the faux stitching was stamped. They look perfect! The splash of yellow the ribbon added makes everything pop. This is awesome!
