Great Joy ~ Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge


Wow! What a different and beautiful colour palette today from Dawn :) After the last challenge card that took me almost 2 hours to glue 3 pieces of paper down, this one went a little more smoothly. Thanks to everyone for their kind comments and Spotlight congrats on that card. Christmas popped into my head for this one. I have this beautiful dp from Michaels that I thought would be perfect. I also got my new Poinsetta Nestabilities a few weeks ago and haven't been able to use it yet. Instead of a crumpled flower, I made a crumpled poinsetta!! This may turn into one of my Christmas cards this year :) I love the non tradional colours. I stamped the 2 poinsettias with Fancy Flourishes and added half pearls for the centre. I took an extra photo to show off the dimension...it's really fun in person :) The button is one of my Grandpa's (real vintage!). I wonder if he can see me from Heaven using them ;) Have a wonderful day and if you can, join in Dawn's Colour Challenge. If not, just come and look at the eye candy on her blog :)
