Life's a Bowl of Cherries

I'm so sorry for the cliche, but I'm sure you understand why I had to do it. It was the perfect sentiment for this card.

I am submitting this card for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge. This week was a color challenge - Chocolate, Lemon and Pink. I don't think I ever would have made a card wit those colors had I not been challenged to do so, but now that I have them together, I kind of like it.

I also used a sketch that I created for this week's challenge on the Creating Keepstakes PaperCrafts Message Board.

Thanks for stopping by!
