This week's "mix and match" challenge at Dynamic Duos is to use Cherry Cobbler and a colour of our choice on a card/scrapbook page.

I consulted my trusty Stampin' Up! Color Coach for inspiration on this one, because I wanted to move away from my usual choices!  Apparently Riding Hood Red is a complementary colour to Cherry Cobbler - granted, not terribly different, but all the same that's what I chose! 
The colour differences on my card (injections of neutrals notwithstanding) are subtle, so I thought I'd point out what's different about the two Christmas ornamments.  The left one (with the bow) is embossed in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White card.  The right one (mounted on the circle) is white-embossed on Riding Hood Red card. 

Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, More Merry Messages
Card: Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations
Ink: Versamark inkpad
Other: Holiday Ornaments framelits dies, Lacy Brocade embossing folder, sanding block, 2 1/2" Circle punch, Basics Paper-Piercing pack, Finishing Touches edgelits die, Vintage faceted buttons, Cherry Cobbler scallop dots ribbon, Cherry Cobbler baker's twine, stampin' dimensionals, glue dots
