Miss You ~ Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge #15

Hello fellow stampers! I know this isn't the card I meant to post today but I was so excited about this one I had to share it first. I saw Dawn's colour challenge last night and right away this card popped into my head. It was too late to start so I sketched it out and put some pink dp on my work table. Then I thought about the details and how to use the colours. When I got home this afternoon, I started in. Everything went as planned until I got to the label...hmm, what colour? I made about 3 different ones with different ink on different coloured cardstock, but the vanilla with pink ink won out. There wasn't much green at first, just the scalloped borders, so I added one more button {but no bling :( }. I took the photo just before the wind came up outside and then my battery icon started flashing. I really love this one. The stitching (with cream thread no less!), the buttons, the Labels 4 tag...the dp...everything makes me smile!! Thanks for letting me share my excitement with you :) Sending you all lovely Sunday smiles :)

What's in it?
Stamps: PTI mega mixed messages
Ink: SU rose romance
Paper: SU vanilla, regal rose dp; PTI spring moss
Accessories: SU scallop border punch; stitching; PTI buttons in melon berry and spring moss, melon berry satin ribbon; nestabilities Labels 4; pink floss
