Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge #13

Greetings to Dawn McVey readers...I have started a blog this week so you'll see my cards here from now on. I've been experimenting with these colours in my head for a day (almost fell off the treadmill this morning!LOL) and am happy with the way it turned out...very close to what was in my head which is not what usually happens :) I'm still experimenting with the camera and photo editing. The inside shot won out this time. I just needed the polka dots on the white panel to show up. I stamped those in Versamark. I'm still in love with these little button flowers...hope no one is getting bored of them :) I'm so glad I ordered the berry sorbet buttons from PTI. It's so fun to search through the jar to find the perfect ones for a card...pure bliss! After I was done (the first time), the card needed a little something more so I added the red scallop strip and a little bit of bling for good measure.Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!



Recipe:
Stamps: PTI polka dot basics, everyday classics; SU flower filled
Paper: PTI white, berry sorbet; SU real red
Ink: PTI berry sorbet; SU celery; Versamark
Accessories: cuttlebug EF; gemstones;PTI berry sorbet buttons; SU scallop border punch, corner rounder, celery grosgrain; red buttons (craft supply)
