The cheerful stamp pad challenge 68 week 2

The cheerful stamp pad challenge 68 continues for another week, with inspiration from this 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 to use cherries, cakes and an embossed diamond panel using an embossalicious folder with my eBosser. The plaid background paper mounted on to a red card blank was a magazine freebie. The strip of cherries mounted between strips of gingham ribbon was printed from a digital image from The Crafty Pad, which I coloured with spectrum noirs. The circles of cupcakes were from a Kanban kit. They are glittered around the edge.
