Blogger's Challenge

Well I am back in the blogging world again... after a crazy week.

This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. I used the new Designer paper Jolly Holiday to make a Christmas card. I know that it is only July but I am working on Christmas ideas for a Christmas in July class next week.

I used Dasher and stamped him in gold ink on Cherry Cobbler CS. I layered this onto very vanilla and then brushed the edges of the CS with Gold ink and gold embossing powder. I really like the "antiqued" look that it gave the center piece.

I do like the shade of the new Cherry Cobbler CS. A deeper red but not too deep. Not quite as purple as the purely pomegranite from 2 years ago.

I can't wait to see what my other blogging friends have made!  Have a great weekend1
