Raspberry Suite color challenge #11
Hi all!! Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend!! I had an awesome week just relaxing and working in my garden. I did not create anything last week!! Summer is definitely upon us and I wanted to be outside!! So without further adieu here is my card I did for Dawn's raspberry suite challenge #11. I was a little stumped on this challenge mainly because of the red... I am not a red person and I find it very hard to use that particular color, so I decided to keep the red at a minimum. I used some stamps ( the damask & flower image...I can't remember the name of the set!) from october afternoon and stamped the damask image in versamark ink on the light gray cardstock. I then stamped the floral image in old olive, punched the butterflies with my martha stewart punches, punched the brackes from a punch I have from ek success, punched the bottom with my new favorite puch from fiskars, stamped the sentiment from papertrey ink, added bling to the butterflies and adhered it all together. This is basicly a one layer card and I didn't used ANY ribbon!!! I love how it turned out... just simple, sweet and a little elegant.
Well I'm off to go visit some family and then back to my garden... thanks for looking and have a great day!!
