My 1st Try at a Raspberry Suite Color Challenge...



Hello, hello :) I finally got a chance to try Dawn's color challenge after missing out on the opportunity to work on her first one. I just LOVED the colors this week! I wanted to make a card for a friend who I found out recently had surgery. She has a daughter in my youngest son's class, so I tucked it into his folder so that it will make its way into her folder in the morning. Hopefully it will brighten up my friend's day tomorrow. Card is easy peasy, but I thought it turned out well. Just a little bit of embellishment - so glad to finally get a chance to use the kaiser rhinestones I bought from eP a few weeks ago. I was determined to dig them out from underneath the drop cloths once I saw the color combo for this challenge. I have been working with limited supplies, although I must admit that my "little" stash has been growing with all of my recent PTI purchases and trips down to the basement to get "just one more thing" I needed for a card! I might need a hand moving everything back downstairs from the guest room where I have been storing my crafting things, at the rate I am going!

I have actually made a ton of cards in the last couple weeks that are just waiting to be uploaded. I have to get on that. Hopefully it will be easier for me to stamp and post what I make again when I can set up my new crafting area... just a few more weekends - I can't wait!!



Supplies:
Stamps: PTI - Life (LOVE this set and can definitely see myself using it a ton!); CS: PTI Stamper's Select; Ink: SU Taken with Teal, PTI Spring Moss, Memento Rich Cocoa; Other: PTI Spring Moss Twill, Kaiser Rhinestones
