Did you do your homework?

Would you believe we got homework last week at Joyce's CTMH card workshop?  She handed each of us a scalloped oval on which we stamped the cherries from the July Stamp of the Month Set.  And we are all supposed to bring it back tomorrow on a card.  Here's my version:

I used paper from the Chantilly paper pack including a border piece for the sentiment, colored the image, added glitter gel to the leaves and a layer of liquid glass to the 3 cherries in the front, edged everything in ponderosa pine ink, tied bakers twine around the paper strip, added some red sparkles, and mounted on an embossed card.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:

Avenue 613 Challenge #31 - Anything Goes with a Twist (Use a Sentiment)
Just For Fun Challenge #1 - Anything Goes
The Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - Embossing (Wet/Dry or Both)
Glitter and Sparkle Challenge #44 - Add Some Red

Crafting By Designs Challenge - Anything Goes
Inkspirational Challenge # 31 - Anything Goes
