Cherry-O It's a Challenge!

Eeek...is it really Tuesday already!?! I do believe it is, and that means that it's time for Anita Be Stampin Challenge #11. This week we have a fun little sketch for you, and there is a $15 Anita Be Stampin gift certificate up for grabs just for playing along. Check out all of the details on the ABS Challenge Blog.

I hadn't pulled out my Anita Be Stampin Cherry Sweet rubber stamp set for awhile, so I decided to whip something new up with it. I typically don't leave my buttons "naked", but those cherries just didn't look quite right with a twine or string knot. Please just look away if you are offended by their "nakedness". I wouldn't want to make you blush! LOL

There's a smidge of a mistake on this card. Did you notice? I thought the flower stems in the patterned paper were black, so I colored the accessories black. After I had most of the card assembled, I realized the stems were actually brown. If I would have known I would have colored accessories brown to match. What can I say...I'm a matchy matchy type of gal! LOL

This card will also be entered in the Cupcake Craft Challenge (pink polka dots).

I hope you'll swing on over to the Anita Be Stampin Challenge Blog to see all of the creations that the design team have made to inspire you. Don't forget to play along with us! :)
