Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #3

Wow ... this week's color challenge was a challenge! Not that there were too many colors, but just that they were colors I wouldn't normally put together. But, I do like my clean and simple card that I put together ...I started by making some patterned paper with PTI's anniversary set - Everyday Classics. I stamped the floral image on Vintage Cream card stock in Melon Berry ink. I went back and added some Pure Poppy red polka dots with a dot stamp from Polka Dot Basics. It seemed a bit overwhelming, so I tapped the whole thing with my New Canvas ink pad to tone it down a bit and make the paper a bit softer looking. Nice effect. I wanted the pattern to be the star of the show, so I left it at that. I added a sentiment onto SU! Pink Pirouette paper in Melon Berry ink (again from Everyday Classics) and stuck that down on foam tape. A little Melon Berry satin ribbon and that was it! Here's a close up of the sentiment.
Hope you like my take on the challenge. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Don't forget to comment on my blog candy post!
