Sugar Creek Hollow Fabulous Friday - God Loves a "Cherry-ful" Giver

It's Friday again and time for another Sugar Creek Hollow Fabulous Friday challenge. This week the requirement was to use buttons. I chose this simply stunning design, one because I love the verse and two because the cherries seemed perfect for this challenge. I actually stitched around the cherries and I think this is more visible on my second picture. I used an Ornare template to pierce the corners of my design paper. I painted Luminarte H20 Egyptian Gold on the frame (one of my favorite colors!) around the sentiment and then used Shimmerz Pink Poinsettia on the sentiment itself. I used Copic markers R29 and YG63 to color and a brown Copic multiliner pen. My branches are from an EK Success punch and sponged with distressed ink. I distressed the first and second background papers and sponged with distressed ink also. A red bow completes the picture!
You can see the stitching better here:
