Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #2

Hi ! As you can tell I am waiting until the last day to get my card into the Color Challenge this week! I have been wanting to make a card, but have been busy with other things. My daughter had a birthday last week and my son's is this week, so you see some of the things I've been busy with. I'll share some pictures of my daughter's birthday party later! I love these colors Dawn picked out for the challenge, I actually picked up some brown and the teal paper last week because I thought it was a good combo and then Dawn posted these colors a couple of days later, so I was excited to make a card using them. Well today I made a card for my son's birthday on Sunday! I wanted to make something a little different than a birthday cake or cupcake, so I made this little popsicle and put these popsicle sticks behind it. I found the pattern for the popsicle from and old magazine I had. I also bought these Thickers last week and wanted to use them so I used my new Papertrey Ink stamp to mix up a sentiment for the card. Well here is the card, I hope ya'll like it. I gotta go get some house work done. :(
My Mind's Eye paper, brown, white, & teal CS, white cotton ribbon, Thickers, Papertry Ink- Mixed message stamps, popsicle stick, VersaMark water mark, white embossing powder, white gel pen, corner rounder, pop dots

Have a Blessed day!
