Kind Thanks ~ Raspberry Suite #2 & FTL #35
Dawn McVey is back with her second Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. These colors are so beautiful together, don't you think? Not only did I receive inspiration from the colors of that awesome bedding from Pottery Barn Teen, but also from the leafy image on the pillow. I knew right away I wanted to use the Wonderful You stamp set, which is one of my favorites even though it's on the Stampin' Up! dormant list. When you combine a beautiful color combination with an amazing sketch, you've got the beginning of a fantastic card. The Fall-to Layout #35 sketch is from Clean & Simple Stamping blog.
With this card, I wheeled the Wonderful wheel vertically over the front of the Tempting Turquoise card base. After covering the bottom section with Bella Rose designer paper, I wrapped the grosgrain ribbon around with at knot at the edge of the card. For the 2-step stamping, I used Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip directly on the Whisper White cardstock. I stamped a flower image on a couple pieces of cardstock, cut it out, and adhered it over the leaves with dimensionals to give it a little pop. The greeting was stamped in Chocolate Chip and cut apart using scissors before adhering with dimensionals.
