Raspberry Suite # 16
Wow I can't believe it is Thursday already!! What in the world happened to this week? Last I checked in I was going to the big city to go shopping and here it is almost week later!! Well I do have good excuses.... shopping, surprise birthday party for my mom and making sun dried tomatoes have been at the top of my list. I did manage to find a few minutes a couple days ago to once again play with Dawn's Raspberry suite color challenge. How I look forward to these color challenges..... they really make me think outside of the box. So on to my card...... I used hero arts four leaf grid stamped with summer sunrise for the background. I used a tag stamp from the tags for spring from papertrey ink and also stamped it in summer sunrise. I stamped the sentiment from the autumn abundance set in dark chocolate and cut out with a circle nesties. I used my new (to me) labels 3 to cut out a piece in dark chocolate and one in kraft. I layered these to form a sort of medallion. The summer sunrise label behind is one of the new spellbinder labels that I got the other day from ellens store. Just adds a bit of elegance to the project. I punched my border and tied a piece of summer sunrise satin ribbon around, tied in a knot and then added a vintage cream button tied with rustic cream twine. I added a few pearls here and there to give it a little omph and there ya go!! Raspberry suite #16 done!! I actually did another card but don't know if I will have time to post so may save it for another day. I'm off to peel some more tomatoes and try and get a few sketches done. Thanks for looking and have a great day!!!
