The cheerful stamp pad challenge 68

This is my card for today's challenge 68 on The cheerful stamp pad, which is this inspiration picture:

Please click on the link and see what the rest of the team have created and, hopefully, join in the challenge - let us see what the picture inspires you to create.

I was inspired by the cherries. The stamp is G-1286 by PSX, inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noirs. The background card and the strips of cherries are from Kanban. I used a Martha Stewart punch on some offcuts of red card and added a Craftworks cards sentiment circle. Everything was mounted on to a cream card blank and the front was cut away to reveal the red punched edge underneath.
