Sweet Friend

Digital Delights has many stamps besides cute creatures, and I love creating with them.
This cherry is from the Ice Cream Parlor Accessories Set. I enlarged the image and printed it 3 times. Using Barn Door Distress Ink  and a sponge, I rubbed the ink all over the images, leaving one side lighter. Then I cut them out. I used my favorite Walnut Stain Distress Ink to ink the edges of each cherry, and the leaf I simply drew on green CS and cut out. I colored the stems with a brown marker.
The background paper is also by Digital Delights. It's from the Noteable Music Digital Paper Pack . This digital paper has an ombre effect, which I over stamped with a background word definition stamp by Hero Arts. I stitched the background to a piece of Coordinations CS, then to a piece to patterned paper by Graphic 45, French Country. The sentiment is from Digital Delight's
Ice Cream Sentiments Set. I cut the sentiment into a flag, and inked the edges. I used the Hardware stamp set by Crafty Secrets to stamp the iron work corners. The nail heads are by CTMH. I used Stickles to dress up the cherries, mount it on a Kraft 6x6 card, and I am done!
