NOW - onto my card deets............I've used a base of Cherry Cobbler and layered with Baked Brown Sugar. Around this I've attached ivory and red ribbons. Next I've stamped the image and sentiment from Short Stacks in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (see below). I've cut this out with Spellbinders Nobel Rectangle and matted it with Cherry Cobbler cut with the largest die from the same set. To finish I've added a red bow and a couple of red enamel dots.
