I got the idea for these earrings from Craftsters. I couldn't tell how the leaves went on and may experiment a bit more, but they do look a bit cherry like and were quick and easy to make.
I also experimented with a other then grey back ground in my scanner. There was a bit of cloud in the middle portion of the scan, that I have to figure out how to get rid of. Thank goodness there is a nice crop tool in PaintShop Pro!
