This week over at Create with Connie and Mary we have a sweet little clean and simple sketch challenge going on.  I absolutely loved this sketch and it gave me a chance to use the Mouthwatering Stamp Set from the Stampin' Up Occasions Mini Catalog.  First, I hand stitched the circle using White Baker's Twine onto the Pool Party card base.  Next, I stamped the cherry stems and leaf onto the Whisper White circle.  Then I stamped, cut out the cherries and stuck them on the card with Stampin' Dimensionals to them to give them a little extra dimension.  To finish it off I added a couple Basic Rhinestones to the cherries to give them a little shimmer as well.

We hope you will join us this week over at Create with Connie and Mary.  Don't forget to stop by and see what the other designers did with the sketch as well.  Have a terrific Thursday.  Take care.

Supplies:  Mouthwatering & Sweet Cake Stamp Sets, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade & Whisper White Card Stock, Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink, Chocolate Chip & Lucky Limeade Stampin' Write Markers, 1 3/4 in. Circle & Small Heart Punches, White Baker's Twine, Basic Rhinestones and Stampin' Dimensionals

Adorable card Carrie! Love the stitching and the rhinestones on the cherries is so clever! I actually thought it *was* a reflection and that you had used crytal effects! The rhinestones are even easier! Great idea!
