Christmas in July

Hello Stampin' Folks. Here is card for the SCS Sketch Challenge this week.

I had been using the Wild Wasabi & Cherry Cobbler for the color challenge and wondered how they would work for a Christmas card. I stamped one of the ornaments from the Tree Trimmings set in Cherry Cobbler, then clear embossed it. It needed something behind it, so I pulled out my Autumn Days set and inked the pine branch with markers. I stamped several times on the 1 3/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Naturals White. The ornament is attached with dimensionals.

The 2 5/8" x 4" piece of Wild Wasabi was stamped with the same pine branch using the Wild Wasabi ink.

The Merry Christmas is from A Cardinal Christmas and stamped with Cherry Cobbler.

All pieces are matted with Cherry Cobbler on a Naturals White 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base.

I like these colors together and will use them again for Christmas cards.
