Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge 5
Dawn McVey has another colour challenge this weekend over on her blog and the colours to use were hibiscus burst, raspberry fizz, smokey shadow and white.
I wanted to make a thank you card for my work colleague who came back from visiting her Sister in the US with two boxes of Papertrey goodies; the Hibiscus Burst, Guidelines Two, Smokey shadow ink and the new grid cardstock came too so I used them to make this card.
The new grid cardstock makes it easy peasy to stamp out the patterns and I used raspberry fizz, hibiscus burst and smokey shadow inks on this one.
The top pattern is stamped in Fresh Snow ink with Background Basics Retro - just love that set! I made the ruffled flower with the bitty dots paper and followed Becca Feeken's tutorial here. It's the first one I've made and I definately need a bit more practice - they are so pretty but very fiddly!
