February Card Challenge -- It's Cherry Month! Winner!

Post by wimom » Sat Feb 01, 2020 7:58 pm

And the winner of the $5 GC is No. 3 -- Scrapqueen 141! Thanks to all the Cherries who shared their Cherry-ific cards!

-----------------------------
Yes, February is National Cherry Month, and I thought we Cherries really should take part!! So for February's Challenge, let's make some cherry-ific cards! If you just are not inspired by cherries, there also is a sketch option again this month. The sketch features cherries but you can substitute any other image/embellishment of your choice.

So here are your options -- one card only, please!

Option 1: Use a cherry or cherries on a card. You could use a cherry-patterned paper, make a cherry border, put a cherry on top of a cake -- you get the idea. Also, using the word "cherry " in your sentiment counts! This can lend itself to some puns, such as "You're cherry sweet."
 
Option 2: Use the sketch below. If you just are not inspired to make a cherry card, you do NOT need to use cherries -- just make a card based on the sketch and use another image/embellishment of your choice. Remember, the sketch can be turned sideways and otherwise adjusted to fit your card idea – the sketch is just a starting point. 
 
Option 3: Earn a bonus by making a card using both the sketch and a cherry or cherries.

A $5 ACOT gift card will go to one Cherry via the random number generator. Please ask if you have any questions.

I have made a couple of cards using the sketch but I'm holding off entering because none have had cherries yet.  So I'm hoping to make one that fits both parts of the challenge by the end of the month.  If I don't I'll enter one I've already made.

And here is my official entry.  I used vintage JBS paper with cherries and the sketch.

I don't enjoy making cards. But I was inspired by the card and this cherry challenge. Please don't include me, but I wanted to share how much I was inspired by this challenge. Thanks for the motivation. My layout follows the sketch with the three sections of PPs and the stacked photo and of course the cherry PP.
