CCMCWINTER13-25 Color Challenge

Hi Stampers:

Once again I am playing along with Create with Connie and Mary.  This time it's a color challenge using:

Cherry Cobbler
Crumb Cake
Old Olive

I can't resist that combination--it is my all time favorite for Christmas cards.  Here's my card:
For this card I used a Crumb Cake card base, Season of Style DSP cut into banners and adhered to a Crumb Cake layer that was embossed with the Fancy Fan TIEF.  I stamped one of the ornaments from the Christmas Collectibles set with Old Olive, punched it out with the Ornament Punch, then stamped again with Cherry Cobbler and punched out the center with the 1/2" circle punch.  The center was popped up with a dimensional, and the ornament was also popped up.  I stamped Joyful Tidings from the Christmas Messages set with Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White, then cut it out with the smallest Deco Labels Framelit, sponged it with Old Olive and popped it up on the Crumb Cake with dimensionals.  The Crumb Cake layer was then popped up on the Crumb Cake base with dimensionals.  I am a big fan of popped up layers the same color as the card base. I almost forgot about the strip of 1/8" silver ribbon behind the ornament, and the rhinestones--a strip under the word Tidings, and one in the center of the ornament.

Enjoy!
