Peachy Keen Stamps + NON June Challenge

Hello friends :)  We are having a sketch challenge at Naughty or Nice Challenges this month!  The great thing about sketch challenges is that you can copy the design exactly as you see it, or you can make a few changes as long as your creation resembles the original sketch. For example, it's OK to use a different shape (you'll notice this in mine below) or you could add some embellishments. The most important thing is that you should be able to compare the two and see their similarities.  

Check out the sketch on the left and my take on it.  The "guts" of the sketch are still in my card, even though I made a couple of changes:  I used a curved edge instead of point and the space between my curved edge and the bottom of the card is larger than the one on the sketch.  I went with a curved edge because I liked the idea to let it mimic the roundness of the cherries :)

I used Copics on the stems and paper pieced the cherries from card stock that I had in my stash.  The green frame was created by using the same Copic marker as the stems, and to show a bit of a reflection, I used a white gel pen on the little cherries :)  The little sentiment tag faded into the background a bit, so I lined the edges with Distress Ink so it stood out a bit.

That's about it for me today!  Remember that the challenge goes through June 25, so you have almost four weeks to crank something out and join us in the fun!   Also remember that your creations can be naughty or nice, so use your imaginations ;)
