Eleanor in a Window Frame

I'm so glad to get to stamp again!  I started with Technostamper's Sketch Challenge TSSC251 and then found the colourQchallenge #177 with an interesting color combination of Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Whisper White.  
I really like the way the Always Artichoke combined with these other colors... I hadn't seen this combination before but l like the way it turned out.
I used the Everything Eleanor set which I love but hadn't used in awhile.  The Artichoke shape was cut with the largest Window Frame Framelit then embossed with the Elegant Lines TIEF before placing it on the card.
Here's a close-up of the focal area where you can see the tickets up close.

Stamps:  Everything Eleanor, That's the Ticket
Inks:  Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party, Always Artichoke (I had the Lucky Limeade leaf stem laying on my stamping desk and liked the touch of brightness it added...)
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party, Always Artichoke, Whisper White
Tools:  Big Shot, Window Frames Framelits, Elegant Lines Embossing Folder, Paper Snips, Blender Pen, Ticket Punch
Accessories:  Large Basic Rhinestone, Cherry Cobbler Ribbon (retired), 7/16" Natural Trim Ribbon

Thanks for visiting my blog today!  I hope you are able to stay safe, warm and well.  We are bracing for a winter storm and possible blizzard here in Oklahoma City! (eta: the snowstorm passed us by but we got lots of soaking rain that was SO needed!)

Stamp on!

Wow, what a fun combination of colors--I would have never thought of Artichoke with those colors but it really works! Awesome card, thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week!
