Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #8

Hey everybody! How is your weekend going? Mine is pretty relaxing, my husband and I are going out to dinner tonight! Can't wait for that, we don't go out by ourselves very much, so it ought to be nice! Here is a card I made last night for Dawn's color challenge. I really liked the colors, and I actually sketched out my own design for it! I usually just start putting stuff together with no idea in mind or I get a design idea from someone else. I am trying to come up with my own designs her lately. I do realize I need more stamps sets, I might have to put in an order for some more PTI stamps soon, I just love those stamps! Well I gotta go, we cooked some hamburger's out on the grill and now I gotta go clean up! Here's the card!

Supplies:

Paper- ColorBok, Kraft, Cream, and Brown from Hobby Lobby

Stamps- PTI- mega mixed messages, Stampabilities- Polka Dot Background

Ink- ColorBox Chalk- Dark brown

Accessories- Offray- brown ribbon, Wright's- Crocheted ribbon, Heidi Swapp- edge distresser, ZIG- Chocolate marker

Have a Blessed weekend!

Winter, this is Lovely! Yes, Lovely with a capital "L". It's kind of got a Shabby Chic thing going for it. :) But the bright pink makes it more modern. FUN!

I just saw that you made Dawn's top pick! Congrats! And it sounds like you guys have some fun planned for the summer. Even when we worked for a small church the pastor always seemed determined to do a huge VBS. Sometimes it's better to just enjoy something small! God bless!
