Jolly in June

The third challenge for the Elite Stampers cyberstamp was to dip into embellishments we'd been a bit precious about, saving for that special occasion that never seemed to come along.

I've used chipboard, dsp and rubons that I hadn't really touched before. This card I am very happy with! I love how the rubons coordinate with the Jolly Holiday paper so well, I'm thinking I'll be revisiting that combination again inthe not-too-distant future. And I don't think I have said it yet, but I lurve how rich a colour Cherry Cobbler is. You think Riding Hood Red is a deep, rich red until you put it beside Cherry Cobbler. And no, I can't believe I've made another Christmas card and it's only June!

I think that's a great idea, Carol, making a point to use your "precious" embellishments. Beautiful card too!
