Raspberry Suite Challenge

Hi friends! Things are getting slightly crazy with us getting ready to move right now...you know how that goes right!? I've got to finalize the things I want to have packed into our "air shipment" and then our suitcases--then try to orgaznize everything that will come to the staes in our "sea shipment." Happy days!

I am a huge fan of Dawn McVey and her fantastic style! So, I was really excited when she posted her first ever "Raspberry Suite" Color Challenge. Here is my offering using some fun new Stampin' Up! stamps! This set will be avaliable from the new Occasions Mini that will be avaliable April 1st.

My translation of the colors included, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Pink Passion, Whisper White, and Pumpkin Pie.

My card stared with a pink passion base. I sure do miss that color-it's been quite a while! My layers are so saffron, chocolate chip and then whisper white. My ribbon is the great saffron you can earn as part of the ribbon bundle during SAB. For my ribbon, I tied myslef a bow with the end of my ribbon--then just didn't cut it off the spool. I used the long piece and wrapped it around the saffron/chocolate chip/ww layer.

I was a bit flustered as I can't find my pink passion ink pad...strange...but luckily I have my trusty Stampin' write markers, so they filled it just fine! I added my sentiment-stamped in chocoalte chip and then started adding my butterflies! My butterflies were stamped with pumpkin pie, pink passion and so saffron. I cut the saffron one from a scrap of ww and cut it out. I added dimensionals to the saffron one, so he has a bit of dimension.

I'm off to do a bit of arranging work...wish me luck!(And a bit of sanity!) Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!!

Love the card; love the way you did the bow. By the way, I miss Pink Passion, too. Wish they'd bring it back, at least temporarily, because my paper is almost gone!
