A Framed Noel

I thought it would be fun to play along with the sketch challenge over at the Retro Sketches site this week.  The sketch was not that hard itself — but sometimes I try to make things too hard by deliberating over which designer paper to use, which ribbon, which stamp set, etc…  Before I know it, a card that takes less than fifteen minutes to make has taken me two hours!  It doesn’t help that the laundry keeps buzzing at me, and I keep thinking of other little chores that I need to do. 

So, I ended up pulling out a color I haven’t used in quite a while — Certainly Celery, and used another color which I use ALL the time — Cherry Cobbler.

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Joyous Celebrations
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, Be of Good Cheer dsp, Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags
Embellishments: Flourish Designer Frames, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Apothecary Accents, Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon, Chevron embossing folder

  1. Hi Amy, I like the card, it’s different and looks very quick to make. However, that has to be the darkest Certainly Celery I’ve ever seen, it looks like Always Artichoke. 🙂 The reason I ask is because the Cherry Cobbler color looks true. Just asking. Otherwise, another great card, one I might like to case for my Christmas cards this year!

    • As I mentioned yesterday, Mikel, I am not a very good photographer. It probably looks dark because I didn’t have one of my settings right. I always feel like I’m doing well if I end up with the whole card in the picture and it’s in focus. Thanks for stopping by!

      • I know, it’s really weird how the photos come out some times, mine don’t always look like I’d want. I bought some lights and I’m going to build a light box for photos. We’ll see how that turns out. I can’t wait to put these colors together! Thanks Amy!

  2. What a great color combo! I’ve never thought of putting Certainly Celery with Cherry Cobbler and they look great together. And, I’m like you – I don’t think I’ve used Certainly Celery for at least a year or two!
