Yes, Virginia, You Do Need Cherry Cobbler

My phenomenally talented friend Joanne was asking whether or not she needed to order the new Cherry Cobbler color. My answer was a resounding, "Yes!"  It's a  beautiful, rich red.  Here are a couple of cards I made with it.

The above card uses the Ornate Blossom stamp as the large focal point.  The smaller one of the same shape is from Friends Never Fade. The sentiment is from Thank You Kindly.  The other colors are River Rock and Basic Black. I love the self-adhesive pearl accents.

The card below uses Friends Never Fade again.  The card base's beautiful texture is from the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. The ribbon  is Vintage crochet trim.

As a side note, it's important to photograph on your deck railing only when the dog isn't in the back yard.  A slight gust of wind can blow the card off the railing and the labrador retriever will succumb to its instinct and retrieve the card.  Sigh....toothmarks = extra texture?
