Cherry Inspiration!

Happy Friday Folks!!

We have another great challenge for you today over on STAMP SOMETHING. This week our design team member Melissa is hosting and she's got an inspiration challenge! This is her inspiration piece -------------------------------------------->
So, for this challenge be inspired to make a card, a scrap page, a 3d item, anything you wish that was inspired by this cherry bag. Have fun playing along with us!

This is my interpretation of the challenge. I made a paper bag purse! I cut a lunch bag to 5 inches square and then embellished it with Black and White cardstock. The cherries are from Tart & Tangy, a SU! set and the polka dots are from Itty Bitty Backgrounds, also from SU!. I added wide grosgrain red ribbon for the purse handles and some black, white, and red grosgrain across the front. The white cardstock has a scalloped edge that I also paper pierced. The final accent was the sentiment from Short and Sweet which was stamp and then adhered with silver hodgepodge. The punches used were the scalloped cirlce, 1 3/8 circle punch, and both the oval punches.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll be inspired to stamp something! Be sure to check out the design team samples, you'll be glad you did!

Have a great weekend and happy stamping!! :)
