Seeing Doubles-SR#26 and OCCSC#22

I am all finished school for the year, with all my report cards done and classes finished, I have had some time to "play" along with some challenge blogs.  I decided to create a Christmas Card using the OCC Sketch and Stampin' Royalty's challenge...Seeing Doubles.  I went for a CAS (Clean and Simple) look.
I wanted to use the new colour Cherry Cobbler, to show all my stampin' gals in my Stampers 6 group how gorgeous it is.  I LOVE this colour...I am excited to use it for Christmas Cards this year, I think I will be going and green.  But this colour is not just red, it is a deep velvet red, it is SO perfect for Christmas.  I embossed the Always Artichoke layer with a Texturz is difficult to see in this photo...maybe I have a better, not much better...
Both sets are in the new catalogue...I used Tree Trimmings (116722) and Christmas Greetings (115448).
