{Rasberry Suite Color Challenge #13} Just a Note ~


Here I am with yet another challenge card today. . . this one for Dawn McVey's yummy Raspberry Suite Color Challenge!

With all the incredible cardmaking inspiration online these days, I barely have to think for myself! ;)

This card really went together quite quickly and I should make a few more of them while I have the idea fresh in my mind and all the supplies scattered all over my stampin' table.

These are not colors that I would normally think to use together, but I think they look terrific! I've used Stampin Up cardstock colors real red and cameo coral. I was trying to use kiwi kiss cardstock too, but settled for the ink on the flower stem and the bow.

Gosh, it's getting late already! I had a hair appt after work and the evening has flown by! Can you believe tomorrow is FRIDAY already?! TGIF!! :)

I'm happy you stopped by today! Smiles 2 U!



Quote for Today ~
Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
Love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don't.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy, but
GOD promised it would be worth it! ~ unknown

Paper: Stamping Up real red, cameo coral, whisper white
