berry cherry christmas

This is the first of my christmas cards for this year!  I was out walking yesterday afternoon and I was mulling over in my head how I was going to tackle the sketch from Paper Smooches SPARKS designer drafts sketch this week ... so I am mulling it over and I had the idea that I wanted to use the Fruitastic stamp set (I don't own too many PS stamp sets!) and then all of a sudden it hit me why not make it into a Christmas card ... you would think that it is not exactly 'christmassy' but down here in the Southern hemisphere our Christmas is in summer and berries and cherries are in season and are a common occurrance on the christmas table (especially cherries you could say they are our christmas fruit) so this card is perfect for christmas :)

and no I haven't mispelt 'cheery' I deliberately wanted it as 'cherry' because of the cherries!
materials - black and white cardstock, Bazzill romance; Paper Smooches fruitastic and alphadot stamps, MFT christmas ornament stamp set; Staz On jet black ink; Crayola colouring pencils; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Carl scallop scissors; Creative Imaginations ribbon
Thanks for looking.

Janet - I love your take on the sketch, and the fact that it's a Christmas card. All those berries are too cute, and the ribbon looks like a sign post for your sentiment! Great job! Thanks so much for playing along with the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge!
