Coloring Down the Lines-Cherry Cobbler and Riding Hood Red

Welcome from Amanda's blog at  I know she made a beautiful card that I can't wait to see.  I did not know quite what to do with this color combination (cherrycobbler and riding hood red), so I am not quite sure how I feel about this one.  I like  to do the emboss resist, so I used the riding hood red for that, and it came out a little pale, but that's what it is.  the Rest is done with cherry cobbler.    Cant wait to go to Helens blog either, so let's go!  Her blog is so much fun, so creative!  I hope you are enjoying your hop with us.  Why not join in the fun and create your own.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith
