Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #7

I'm back again with another color challenge! This one is from Dawn's. I really loved these colors together, but I found it hard to find those colors in my stash! I tried to get the colors as close as possible, and it was hard to get my picture to show the right colors, but overall I really like the card in real life! :) Look how pretty the flowers are in Dawn's inspiration picture, so I just had to use my rose stamp. and I used white card stock to make the flower really pop! Check out the polka dot paper at the bottom of the card. I didn't have a polka dot stamp, so I stamped a pencil eraser with Versamark watermark and then clear embossed it. :) I guess you gotta do what you gotta do! ( I did buy a polka dot stamp today!) :) Ok, here's it is! Recipe:
Paper- My Mind's Eye, Colorbok, Deja Views- paper & CS, homemade polka dot paper
Stamp- The Paper Studio- faith stamps, Rubber Stampede- Rose design stamp, pencil eraser :)
Ink- SU!- Pixie pink ink, Versamark- watermark
Accessories- clear embossing powder, green grosgrain ribbon, pink pom pom ribbon

That pompom trim is sooooo cute! I love your main focal point of the flower - beautiful! A super take on the Raspberry Suites Color Challenge - I'm new to them but think I may play along again next time! I hope you do too!
