Sweet as Cherries

I'm joining in with the current challenge this week at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog. It's my first time playing along and I found the challenge SUMMER FRUITS super cute.
I have been loving the Simon Says Stamp store lately.  I'm sure it's been loving me too (or at least my credit card!).  American Crafts products are the focus this week and I just happen to have several collections to choose from. I paired the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 6x6 collection with a cute stamp from Unity Stamp Co. Paper piecing has long been a favourite technique of mine so that's what I did here to get those cherries looking so pink and sweet!  I actually smudged ink on the top right corner of the card once it was finished, so I took my lesson from the Simon Says Summer School, and covered it up with pearls. I'm learning lots these days. :)
Cherry Fest takes place in July in a local community here in Southwestern Ontario and our family looooooves to buy up LOTS of fresh, sweet, juicy cherries! Yum!
