  1. Oh...love how you sanded your cardstock to create a unique background. Sometimes I forget about the white core and how cool it is to play around with it. Great card! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us at Color My Heart this week.

  2. Great card, Cheryl. Cranberry is one of my fave CTMH colours and it looks so good with Slate and Whisper. Your sanding and inside-the-card design are great! Thanks for taking the Color Dare this week.

  3. Very pretty card, Cheryl! I love the scored background and card layout. Thanks for joining us at the Color Dare this week--please join us again soon!

  4. I love your background, Cheryl! The bow makes a nice addition, to soften the rest of card. Nice job!
