Which came first? The stamp set or the patterned paper?

I saw this Graphic 45 paper and had to buy it to go with the bird and the cherry from the Love & Luck set by Bombshell Stamps. Then it was sort of overwhelming all by its lonesome, so I added a strip of Cosmo Cricket stripe to break it up a bit in one is one of my favorite "go to" card layouts.



The bird was stamped on pale yellow cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The cherry was stamped with VersaFine Crimson Red & Olympia Green inks and then heat embossed, so the cherry would have a little shine. I tried to use Glossy Accents, but made a big old mess when I sneezed and the circle flew and landed gluey side down.

I used my newest Martha Stewart Lattice Border punch.

Thanks for visiting today.
