OCC + PPA122 Challenges

Hi All,
Well after a very long day I gave myself a little time to complete a card challenge (or two!). I started over at Pals Paper Arts. They have a lovely seasonal color challenge. They wanted a card with the colors Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, and Very Vanilla.  Once I had my colors in mind I went on over to our creative corner and they had a great sketch. Here it is:

So I combined these two wonderful challenges and this is what I came up with:
I changed up the center shape to fit my needs. Here is the recipe:
Paper: Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke and Deck the Halls DP (retired so sad!!)
Punches: Ornament.
Embellishment: Big Shot with Oval Die cut and Petals a Plenty embossing folder. Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, which is layered under the Vanilla Victorian Crochet ribbon on top (very pretty in person!!). Finally there is Cherry Cobbler Quilted Ribbon that the ornament is "hanging" from.  I also sprayed the ornament with Vanilla Shimmer mist. Very "sparkly" but understated. :)
Hope you like it! I love to play with these two challenges!
