Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge 7

Better late than never for this challenge from Dawn McVey - thank goodness we are ahead of US time here! I got out my tapestry rubber stamps for this challenge as they have been a bit neglected of late. When I saw Susan's tutorial on the pansey set (here) I remembered that I had a similar one that needed a bit of love.

I started off stamping in raspberry fizz, ripe advocado and spring moss but it looked a bit "thin" so I added in a little hibisus and new leaf to perk it up a bit! Deviating from the colours I know, but I like the strawberryish colour it all came out.

Here's a closer look at the flower stamping - I used a classic square nestability to chalk out the centre in pink and then stamped away before cutting and embossing with the same die. The cardstock is ripe advocado and spring moss and the paper is spring moss bitty dots.

Do you see that little bow- I made it with a Bow-Easy which I got from Sharon Johnson over at No Time to Stamp. This was my first attempt and it was easy! If you fancy one Sharon will ship one to the UK for you at very little cost! You might want to get some of her beautiful ribbon while you're at it.

Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Such a pretty card for Dawn's challenge. I find my Tapestry stamps being ignored too :( But, they just seem like so much work and I'm always doing a "Last minute fast in in a hurry" card for these challenges.
