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.
