Laura's Sketch #22 & Raspberry Suite Challenge #1
Happy Wednesday! Oh my, the first week back from Spring Break is hard! lol! I did squeeze some stamping time in Tuesday night, so that made it a little better, although I should have been working on other stuff probably, oh well!
I wanted to tackle the fabulous Dawn McVey's new Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #1 and to tackle to "two challenges with one card," I used Laura's Sketch #22 for the design. I always love Dawn's use of bright, vibrant colors, but it truly is a challenge for me! I agonized over this for SOME time! lol! I was also trying to *junk* it up more...you know, add more stuff! lol!
I started with the flowers in the background by stamping them with Pixie Pink craft ink (I thought the cardstock was Pixie Pink, but realized later it was Pink Passion, oops!), and embossing with clear embossing powder. The *hi* part started out with a pink glittery chipboard bird, but he just wasn't working for me. It seemed to be crying out for Thickers, so I broke into my precious stash! ha! The little chipboard tag was made with the Big Shot and Lots of Tag Sizzlits set (very versatile!) and some Always Apricot Patterns DSP. The *huge* orange stripe ribbon is by Li'l Davis Designs that I bought at Tuesday Morning years ago. I think that covers most of the deets, let me know if you have any questions though!
Thanks so much for stopping by! You don't know how much your sweet comments cheer me up on rough days when I check on my iPhone between classes! =) Hugs and happy stamping!
