Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15

Hiya! Just popping in to post my card for Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15. I love the colors this week - Cream, Melon, Moss, and Medium Pink. I *finally* was able to make some time to stamp today - its been crazy since school started yesterday. Hopefully, I can get my head above water at work and get settled into a schedule that has room for stamping! :-)
Anyway, I used Dawn's new set, Scattered Showers Additions on this one. I started by stamping the tag image in Melon Berry but I purposely did not ink it well to give a more vintage feel. I trimmed this out and added some flowers and leaves in Hibiscus Burst & Spring Moss respectively. The sentiment is also from the set. A few extra details - I crumpled up the cream base under the tag and inked that and the Spring Moss Bitty Box layer with Chamomile ink, again to get a more vintage feel. I also added some sparkle to the flowers with a Sakura glitter pen and some Martha Stewart adhesive pearls.

Well, that is about it for now! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Scattered Showers Additions
Ink: PTI Chamomile, Hibiscus Burst, Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate, Melon Berry
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Spring Moss card stock; Bitty Box paper in Spring Moss
Accessories: PTI Hibiscus Burst satin ribbon; Sakura glitter pen; MS adhesive pearls; foam tape; twine; corner rounder punch

  2. Chrissy, Beautiful card. Loved the way you have inked the tag :)...The crumpled paper is a good effect too..I do not do that much. You should enter your card into the flourishes timeless challenge as well. Their challenge is to use pearls. The pearls on the flowers look soo pretty.
