Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #12

Hey everyone! I made some cards for Dawn's Color Challenge last night. PTI does the most ingenious thing, they let you "Try Before You Buy" their paper for free. All you have to do is go to their web site here and print it out. They have a lot of lines to choose from. I used the Raspberry Fizz Mix (my favorite one) and I printed it out on cream cs to stay with the color scheme. I was so excited about these printable papers, that I had to make more cards! I made 4 little gift cards, it was so fun to make these! I can't wait to make more projects with these printable papers! I had a hard time with the scarlet jewel color, I don't own PTI paper, so I had to search for that color in my paper stash. I hope it's close enough. OK, so here's the cards!
Supplies:
~You're To Kind Card~
Paper- Cream, Dark Red, & green cs
Stamp- PTI-mega mixed messages
Ink- Memories- Crimson
Accessories- PTI- Try Before You Buy papers,Martha Stewart-butterfly punch

~Small Gift Cards~

Paper- Cream, Dark Red, & green cs
