Today is my first time playing along with The Ribbon Wheel and their Color Challenge #30. I have had strawberries on my mind for several weeks now and this gorgeous inspiration picture just made my mouth water!
Wouldn't you love to have a great big piece of this?
Here's the card I made based on those beautiful colors.
I used Authentique paper (Uncommon collection) along with some PTI Fine Linen and Kraft cardstock. I don't remember where I got the lace, but I wove some yellow and cream bakers twine through the top border in two rows. It added just a little bit more of the yellow from the inspiration photo. The gorgeous heart diecut was a gift from my friend Jeanne Jachna of A Kept Life, it's a Serendipity Heart Scroll (Jeanne is on their Design Team) and is so lacy and intricate. They also sell a solid background for the heart which gives a great contrast. I also added a few cute flowers that Jeanne sent me. I also tried to "channel" Jeanne with the bow. Her bows are always so perfect! It is not my normal style and it kind of got away with me a bit, but sure looks nice and poofy in person. After I had done all the layering and stitching, I realized I didn't really have a place for the sentiment, so I added a tiny little tag with a PTI Tag-It's #12 sentiment.
That is it for today, I'm getting ready to leave on a vacation and am practically forcing myself to stop crafting long enough to get packed. Thanks for taking a look!
that cake looks delicious and i love what you've done with your card!! so elegant and feminine!!
This is just so beautiful. I love all the layers, lace, and bows. That die cut is really very beautiful. So, this project is a perfect take on our Paper Dolls challenge--go and enter!

Love this one Cathy by far my new favorite of yours . And yes I may say that again. Love the Jeanne bow its gorgeous and so is the beautiful die she sent you. I love the papers and that scalloped edged the flowers just beautiful. A sure winner! Enjoy your vacation. Too bad you have to stop crafting you are on a roll!
Cathy, this is so beautiful and that bow looks pretty perfect to me (I need to learn how to do this). I love all of the little details you have added with the weaving of the baker's twine to the most beautiful heart and radiant roses. Amazingly beautiful card.
This is beautiful Cathy, that filigree heart certainly packs a punch, so pretty and intricate. Love your vanilla bow, and the fab stitching on the perfect papers, a scummy yummy card!
