Raspberry Suite Challenge 13

Good Day to you! I've just gotten home from a few hours with just my baby...how fun was that!? Not that being with all 3 isn't great, but being with just Ruby was really fun! So, here is a little card that matches my little Ruby!

I made this card to play along with Dawn's Raspberry Suite Challenge, here is a link. I think these colors are great! I wouldn't not have thrown the "berry" or Cameo Coral into the combo without some help, so thanks Dawn for the challenge!
I started with picking the stamp set I wanted to use. I love the For All You Do stamp set! That is where the polka dots and butterfly stamps came from. The 'A note of thanks' came from the Thank You Kindly Stamp set.

I stamped my polka dots in Real Red ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I used my Curly Label punch to make a home for my butterfly. I put my label on some Real Red cardstock then cut around, giving me a nice border.

My "Rock 'n' Roll" butterfly was stamped in Cameo Coral ink first, then the edges were rolled into Real Red ink. I did use my paper snips and cut it out by hand, it wasn't bad at all! I mounted my butterfly onto my label with a couple of dimensionals. The little ruby on the butterfly is by Martha Stewart.

For my card base, I started with Whisper White cardstock. The Big Shot took my cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and Certainly Celery cardstock for a quick ride to give me my polka dots. I used the eyelet border punch and Whisper White cardstock to make a nice little piece of lace. I attached the lace to my card, used a strip of sticky strip to attach my 5/8" grosgrain Real Red ribbon. I used some Real Red ink to stamp my sentiment and then attached my butterfly label to the card with dimensionals.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day! See you tomorrow!
