Sweet Cherries

     Hello friends!  Today's card is another entry for the Sweet Challenge celebrating Flourishes 5th Anniversary.  I was gathering papers together for a different challenge when this beauty cherry paper from My Mind's Eye popped up.  Well, that's all it took to whip out the Cherries and Peaches set by Flourishes.
     The sketch is inspired by Mojo #253.  After coloring the cherries I took a cloth with blending fluid to put texture on the cherries.  I wasn't careful and instead of texture I got splatters!  I like the result!  Crystal accents added with a brush created texture.  A touch of stitching and a rhinestone heart completes the card.
     Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a "sweet" Wednesday!
