Happy Birthday Grandma

This card was amazingly simple yet I think it looks stunning. I love the country vintage feel - there should be a lattice top cherry pie on a window sill somewhere.

I used a border punch for the stitches on the red cardstock and inked the edges of the polka dot paper and white layer to age it a little. I had cut the cherries out a while ago while playing around with my Gypsy so those were ready to go. A little twine, ribbon and rhinestones and BAM done. You know I really miss the Emeril show!

I am entering this card in the Shopping Our Stash (SOS) Food/Beverage Related Challenge. Then it's off for safe keeping until it's time to head to Grandma's house!
