Buttons & Bows for Monkey Challenge 65

This week over at A La Card Monkey. The challenge is a sketch with a touch of buttons and bows.
I used the cherry image from Tart and Tangy and added some red buttons to the end of the stalks to make the cherries. I then added some crystal effects to the tops of the buttons to give them a richer, glossier look.

For the background I used the Polka Dot Embossing folder, but I stuck the piece of card on, with the bumps facing down, to give a more subtle effect.

I finished it off with some red and white polka dot ribbon and a seam binding and red ribbon bow, with a touch of bling!

I found the perfect sentiment for the inside in the Goody-Goody Gumdrops set, which I won over at A La Card Monkey! (Thanks Girls!)
