Cute Card Thursday Cherish

Today I followed the sketch on Cute Card Thursday and I really like how it turned out. I wanted a Happy card but not using the purples or pinks that I seem to be using a lot lately. All the papers I used today came in a blog candy but I think they are all SU papers. They are all reversible and coordinate perfectly.
I colored my Kneeling Willow from WOJ using Twinkling H2Os. I can hardly wait for my orders of paints to come in. I was so upset to hear they were stopping making these gorgeous paints that I ordered as many as I could afford. Today I used only 4 colors: hair-Ginger Peach; apron-Autumn Butternut; dress-Mystic Blue with highlights of Sapphire on Ice. I used the light peach Prismacolored marker on the flesh and deco pink marker on the flower.
To create the two circles I used my SU punch and the 3rd scalloped nestibility. The Cherish stamp is from Baroque Motifs and is stamped in Taken with Teal. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create the bottom edge.
I used the scraps for the inside and added some of the ribbon Classic Traditions Satin ribbon for trim. I am expecting company this afternoon so I best tidy up a bit. Talk later.
Hugs
Heather
