SCALLOPED CHERRIES

HELLLLOOOOOO, Paper Players! 
I liked the Sketch Challenge for this week, so decided to indulge myself.

What do you think of the cute little cherry design on the Designer Series Paper I used for my background? 

That paper, as well as the funky crosshatched green and white piece come from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack on page 144. I threw in a little Mint Macaron for a some contrast. The card base is that scrumptious Watermelon Wonder. Mmmmm. Makes me hungry just looking at it. It is spot on for the color of watermelon!


I did dig out the retired set, Button Buddies, to make my little cherries for my focal point. I cut out and popped up the leaf. And I like the little scalloped circles around the button "cherries". As I am wont to do, I repeated the cheery (cherry!) scallops in the dot-embossed white circle.


Below is the sketch on which I based my card. I stayed fairly true to the sketch:
