Raspberry Suite #19!


I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend! Such a shame it flies by way too quickly for my liking - though I'm especially excited about next weekend! If you're wondering why, click here!

Today I decided to play along with Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge #19. Hard to believe we're on #19 already!
So these colours aren't the kind I'd stick together but that's what I like so much about these challenges! So I got thinking, and decided to use the picture of Dawn and Nicole posing beautifully in those gorgeous T-Shirts as my starting point:I hope you can tell where the T-Shirt is represented, otherwise I've gone wrong somewhere!

Still not sure about those buttons - they nagged me to be featured on this card but I'm not convinced they belong there! Well needless to say they're stuck down pretty firm so they're staying!

Card Recipe
Stamps: Fancy Flourishes, Friends 'til the End
Cardstock: Aqua Mist/Spring Moss Bitty Dot Basics/Stampers Select White
Ink: Spring Moss/Whispers Lovely Lilac/Raspberry Fizz/Aqua Mist/Dark Chocolate/Versamark
Accessories: Raspberry Fizz Polka Dot Ribbon (Reversed!)/Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/Detail Clear EP/PTI Buttons Holiday Mix

On more PTI news - Lauren Meader (who I adore - what a talented lady!) has decided to leave the PTI Senior Design Team! Though fear not, she's on a new adventure with her own store! I can't wait to see what PTI come up with in her place! Though Lauren could never be replaced, PTI always have such clever ideas up their sleeves so watch this space!

And finally, for all of you participating in the PTI ATC Christmas swap, you should have received an email by giving you the full deets! If you haven't received an email yet, please email us at so we can get back to ya!

Beautiful!! Such a fancy looking card! Now, a quick hint on how you did it? My guess is glossy cs, colors sponged on, flourish and word stamped/clear embossed and then brayered over in black? Am I close? I want to CASE this!!
