raspberry suite rejected... by me!!
Hey! Just thought I'd share a card that I made for Dawn's raspberry suite challenge #16 that I did not post. This was the first card I made and I really couldn't decide if I liked it or not enough for the challenge. is that crazy or what? So I made another one and posted it and it made the spotlight!!! You just never know!! I was totally not expecting it!! If you have not tried one of Dawn's challenges I encourage you to do it. They really help me think outside the box with colors I may not normally use. Just play to have fun! I have been totally shocked every time that Dawn has picked me because well I'm just little ole me and there are sooo many talented people out there in blog land!!
On to the card..... I printed the background paper from a kit I got at house of 3 around easter time.. I think it is from the easter papers kit. The yellow matches summer sunrise exactly!! I used my big scallop punch to make a border along the bottom and them punch one in kraft and one in dark chocolate to make a layered border. I stamped the image from the 2009 autumn tags set from papertrey ink in summer sunrise, cut out with a circle nestie and matted it with a dark chocolate circle. The ribbon is dark chocolate satin. I added a few pearls along the edge of the circle and three pearl flowers from jenni bowlin. I can't remember where I got mine but they are one of my favorites!!
I'm outta here and thanks to all of you who comment and leave such encouraging words!!!
