Merry Monday Color Challenge

As you can guess by the title, this challenge is issued on Monday.  Once I saw it I had to ponder it and ponder it, and ponder it.  Miss Merry Monday wanted us to use the colors red, vanilla, kraft and chocolate all on the same card.  And anyone who knows me, knows that kraft makes me weep.
After all that pondering I did, I finally decided that I was going to have to skip this challenge because nothing came to mind.  Then in the wee morning hours this card popped into my mind.  Well, a similar version popped into my mind.  My mind likes to fancy that I'm a real artist, which means the reality version is usually not nearly as spectacular.  Even though, I thought it was a fun card.

Come check out the others who came to play at Merry Monday #92.  You can see spectacular cards there.

The Fine Print: Pine tree die by Sizzix, Swiss dot embossing folder by Cuttlebug, dot and square punches by EK Success, tag punch by Marvy, vanilla twill ribbon, pinecone and greeting stamps by A Muse Artstamps.

I think it's a real fun card too! Love the glisten of your tree with its red & kraft ornaments against the bright red EF, and very pretty against the Kraft mat. Yep, you can say you're an "Art-tiste". Me, I'm a copier! TFS & hugs

Oh no... how can you not like kraft? I don't think we can be friends any more!! Surely you like it a little bit after the success of this fabulous card?!
