Raspberry Suite Challenge - Week 5

Dawn McVey is having another color challenge.
Inspiration comes from a pretty picture she took while she was in Hawaii soaking in the sun.

I love her site and all of her creations. She is so talented.

I had made a card the night before, went to bed, thought about the card and decided to add the background flowers and the embossed black at the bottom to make it look more like rocks.
(In my mind anyway)


Just For You & Back ground flowers stamp PTI: Out of the Box
Mother stamp PTI: Tags for spring
Background Basics PTI: Spots & Dots
Habiscus Burst ribbon PTI
Raspberry Fizz paper PTI
Black and pink paper scraps on hand
Crochet flower, button & white ribbon, me.

Here is a second attempt at the colors. It was fun to make the flower. I cut and embossed the butterfly using my cuttlebug.
