Thank You, Scarlet

So now I suppose you're thinking that, while making my Christmas cards, I got stuck on these colors.  Well, yeah, I do love them. But trust me when I say that this is probably the 5th (at least!) color combination I used trying to make this card.  I saw the Giga Guide Lines set by Papertrey and thought, "Ooh! I cannot wait to get my hands on those stamps!"  And then I actually got my hands on them and couldn't get anything to come out how I wanted.  I knew I would love them in Scarlet Jewel, so I tried that with kraft and on my second try with those colors, I got this.  The first card is similar,  So I did some tinkering.  Phew. And the picture is not the best, cuz it took me so long to get the card right I had to take the picture at night.  Boy, the things I do so you people have something new to look at!  Really, one day (are ya tired of hearing this yet?) I'm going to figure out how to take better pictures of my cards. Maybe I can get my brother to come by & help me some time, since he's the expert {Kaleb, are you out there?}.

Stamps: Giga Guide Lines & Background Basics: Text Style (PTI), Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Scarlet Jewel (PTI), Paper: kraft & Scarlet Jewel (PTI)
