Summer Cherries

Today I'm sharing a sweet summer time card that features yummy cherries and a line of little black ants!
 Since I don't own a cherry stamp, I used buttons, a sharpie marker, and two tiny hand-cut leaves to make the focal point of my card.  I distressed all the edges of my card front and inked them with brushed corduroy distress ink.
I decorated the inside to match and included a sentiment from one of my favorite Anna Griffin sets: Chalkboard Sentiments!

Supplies and Tools:
Red Sampler Pack, Burlap Ribbon, Baker's Twine, Burlap String, Buttons, Sharpie Marker, Beaded Ovals Nestabilties (Spellbinders), Black Soot/Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Ink Applicator, Paper Distresser, Front Sentiment from Wordsworth, Chalkboard Sentiments (Anna Griffin), Coffee Stained Paper Doily, Corner Rounder, Ant Stamp
