Okay, I was all excited about playing with the new stampin' goodies, so I could show you all a teaser, right? Well, first off, one of the stamp sets I ordered appears to have disappeared. I don't know where it could possibly be. When I unpack that carton of goodness that Mr. Brown delivers (on a too regular basis, lol), everything goes into its rightful place, and it was no different with that clear-mount stamp set.
So, since I couldn't use the set I had originally planned, I pulled out the Christmas Collage background stamp. It has a lot of the same elements in it, all in a collage (*snerk*, hence the name, 'eh?). After I completed the card, I just wasn't thrilled with it. I couldn't put my finger on it, but it was just "off".
Pioneer Woman would say. So after giving it some thought, I decided it needed more Cherry Cobbler. Here's the result:
