Cherry Cobbler Christmas Card

Hi!

I did a little blog surfing last night before I made this card.  I was looking for a challenge to inspire me and as soon as I saw the current sketch at Card Patterns I knew exactly how I would interpret it.  Don't you love it when things fall into place like that?

Here's the sketch.


And here's my card:


I love the little Polka Dots in the DSP - so bright and cheerful.  I was aiming for the look of a Christmas Wreath for the centre circle with all the punched out leaves.

Here's a side on view showing how I raised the centre section:


Stamps: Perfect Punches
Ink: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler
DSP/Card Stock: Jolly Holiday, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz
Other: Dimensionals, 3/4" Circle M Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Two Step Bird XL Punch, Circle Cutter, Rhinestones, 1/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, 5/8" Old Olive Satin Ribbon

Catch you later,

Tina.
