Cupcake Inspired Cherries

This card I made for Taylor's weekly cupcake challenge. I hadn't stamped with these cherries yet, so I thought I'd give them a try for this sketch. I see now that I made the green panel too large, that happens sometimes when you hand-draw the sketch to try to remember it. Anyway, the cherries are colored in with Stardust pens and have a nice sparkle to them IRL. I tied a bow across the top and then matted it with Chocolate Chip cardstock. The green layer is from the new Basic Grey Euphoria - it does have a faint pattern, hard to see in the photo. Next, I stuck on some Primas and used a scrap of Basic Grey Sultry for the bg panel. The edge of the Euphoria was looking too plain, so I added some faux stitching. Pretty simple card overall!
