Love You To The Core

It's Friday again, and time for another die cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches.  Today, our challenge is all about fruit.  I debated on doing a birthday card with peaches saying, "Hope your birthday is just peachy," or maybe a card with bananas saying, "Go bananas on your birthday!"  But, in the end, I decided to use this sweet picture of our granddaughter and my hubby together with a title "Love You To The Core."  I really like how it turned out, and it was so fun to do a layout instead of a card.  Here are the details:

Card Stock:  American Crafts, Core'dinations; Bazzill
Patterned paper:  Unknown
Tag:  Don Juan Cricut cartridge cut at 4"
Love & Core:  Don Juan Cricut cartridge cut at 1 1/2"
U:  Don Juan Cricut cartridge cut at 2"
To & The:  Don Juan Cricut cartridge cut at 1 1/4"
Hearts:  Don Juan Cricut cartridge cut at 1 1/2", 2" and 2 1/2"
Flourish:  Don Juan Cricut cartridge cut at 1 1/2"
Apples:  Country Life Cricut cartridge cut at 4 1/2"
Flowers:  EKSuccess large retro flower punch; Buttons:  American Crafts
Leaves:  Spellbinders die
The white banner like border and wavy border are Bazzill "Just The Edge."

I used Sketch #71 over at Sketchabilities for the sketch.   It was a very cool sketch to work with for my embellishments.

I hope you like it.  Thanks for your comments, and come join us for the "fruit" challenge!
