Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #1

Dawn McVey, the color combo genius, handed out a color challenge. (The first of many I hope!) I would never have put these colors together on my own. I struggled a bit, but once I chose a layout it was smooth sailing.

I used one of my favorite Cherry Blossom stamps. It is such a gorgeous and versatile image. I really needed some more Copic practice so I pulled those babies out today. This is such a colorful card, perfect for today's cloudy day here. (ETA: I used Mojo Monday's Sketch #71 for the layout)

Hope everyone has a great day today. It's the final day of Spring Break so the kiddos get back to school tomorrow. And you know what that means. FREE TIME!!!!

Stamps: Rubber Stampede Cherry Blossom, PTI Damask Designs
Ink: Versamark Ink, Versafine Sepia, Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: SU Pumpkin Pie & Chocolate Chip, PTI Raspberry Fizz
Misc: PTI Summer Sunrise Grosgrain Ribbon, Stickles, Copics
