Good For You ~ RSCC7 & TPE




I combined Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #7 with The Pink Elephant Sketch Challenge with this card. Dawn's colors in her beautiful photograph are Raspberry, Artichoke & Celery.

My Big Shot got some great use with this card. I used the sizzlet dies to create the bouquet of flowers and leaves with the Birds & Blooms, and Little Leaves sizzlets. I love those darling flower shapes that mimic a button look! Notice the color spritzing on the vase that was punched with a Wide Oval punch with the top cut off and placed as a base of the vase. To wrap the ribbon through the book-style card, I cut a sliver of the fold to slide the ribbon into and tie to the front.



Stamps: Really Retro
Paper: Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Rose Red, Pink Passion, Very Vanilla CS
Ink: Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery Stampin' Write Markers
Other: Color Spritzer, Coluzzle, Certainly Celery 5/8" Grosgrain, Rich Regals brads, Big Shot, Birds & Blooms, Little Leaves Sizzlets, Stampin' Dimensionals
