Christmas Countdown-3 Days

I am so excited to be playing in a new-to-me challenge today!  It is called Paper Craft Crew Challenges and this week they have a sketch challenge that I paired with the color challenge at colourQ.
I really love this color combination!  I had to substitute Riding Hood Red in for the now-retired Ruby Red. I like the subtle difference on my card between it and the Cherry Cobbler.
I thought this would be a great chance to use up some of this DSP that is in the Festival Prints DSP stack in the Holiday Catalog. Just a few more days and it will no longer be current!  I always forget about this stamp that is in Word Play.  I think this is the first time I used it this year!  I'm glad I found it just in time before Christmas!

  1. Oh so pretty....this was my fav print from the Festival papers....sadly, mine is ALL GONE! Great way to use the colors! And I always forget about that sentiment from Word Play...perfect! So glad you could play with the CQC colors this week!

  2. Darling card, Shana. It's amazing how that little bit of kraft really warms up the reds!

  3. Beautiful card, Shana, love that embossed Cherry Cobbler cs! lovely design! Thanks for sharing your card with us at the colourQ this week. Happy Holidays!
