The Cherry On Top

Good morning,

I'm back with another challenge combo.

Sometimes I know exactly what I want to do when I see a challenge set out before me, other times I sit at my desk and wonder what to do. This was one of whose times, I sat there staring at my stamp sets with out a clue what to do, only knowing that I wanted to enter another card into the Shabby Tearoom challenge of polka dots. I flipped through my Brights DSP stack I decided to use Real Red polka dots, and then it came to me in a flash, my Tart and Tangy stamps, the cherries would be a perfect match to the red paper I had chosen. That meant that I would have to use green as a second colour for the stalks and a neutral so I went for Choc Chip.

I wanted to play along with this weeks Mojo Monday sketch which I have adapted a little

I don't have a photo corner punch yet, so I decided to do a little distressing in the corner, and place another DSP this time Pear Pizazz In-colour paper behind, I also co-ordinated this with a layer on the front.

Right at the end I decided to add buttons for the cherries, I'm really quite pleased with this one.

See you again soon, I hope, xx

Could it be that you are yearning for Button Buddies Kelly?! It works just as well with Tart and Tangy and looks great with the DP. Vx

PS Thanks for your comment and of course I don't mind!
