Raspberry Suite Challenge

I loved Dawn's Raspberry Suite colour challenge this week - what a fabulous colour combination!

And here's my card:

I think I can safely say you haven't seen the last of these fabulous flourishes on here! I stamped the flourish with Vintage Cream ink onto Kraft cardstock. I haven't given my Heart Prints set much love recently so stamped and punched out a heart from the set, added a button and satin cream ribbon and sponged all the edges with distress ink.

(All PTI unless otherwise stated)

Stamps - Fancy Flourishes/Heart Prints
Ink - Vintage Cream/Dark Chocolate/Antique Linen Distress Ink (Ranger)
Card - Kraft/Vintage Cream/Dark Chocolate
Paper - 2008 Bitty Dots - Raspberry Fizz
Ribbon - Cream Satin
Other - heart punch (EK Sucess)/scalloped border punch (Fiskars)/Hibiscus Burst button/brown pearls

Have you seen the sneak peeks for the new releases?! I'm so excited about the basket set Nichole previewed today - I love stamps that I can colour!!

Thanks for visiting and don't forget our current challenge!
