Cherry-O Mojo

I adore this weeks Mojo Monday sketch:

I also love to play along with The Shabby Tea Room challenges.  I was excited when I saw this weeks theme entitled Hi Ho Cherry O, we were challenged to create a card with cherries on it in honor of national cherry month.  Close to My Heart had a workshop kit a few years ago called Cherry-O it included paper and a stampset both with a cherry theme, so I knew what paper and stampset I was starting with.  Here's my card that I created using both the Mojo Monday sketch and including cherries:

I stamped the leaves on the stems and the bowl in sweetleaf and then rolled the edges in chocolate.  I have to confess that this is actually take 2 for me.  I wasn't quite happy with my first try, I took pictures of it, but couldn't bring myself to post them.  I was thinking about the challenges last night while I was feeding calves at the farm.  I decided to start over, so after I put the girls to bed, I stayed up late and made take 2.  I'm very pleased with how this card turned out.
