Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #5

This is my first time participating in the Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. I have been following all of the other ones, but something always came up that prevented me from playing. Not this time! I had bought this Doodlebug paper a couple months ago; I loved that it was flocked and bright pink! When I saw the colors that Dawn selected I immediately thought of this paper. The bow is tied with bias tape. I love the fabric look, but hate to fuss with ironing seams so bias tape was totally the way to go.

I love the way the bow came out. Sometimes I fuss with them for what seems like an eternity. This bow prety much ties itself. A die cut tag made with my silhouette and stamped with a sentiment from Hero Arts completes the card! Oh, and I put pop dots under the white layer to give the card a little lift. Hope you like it!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Basic Gray (SU), White (Wausau)
Patterned Paper: Doodlebug Designs
Bias Tape: from my sewing stash, probably from JoAnn's
Stamp: Hero Arts
Ink: Going Gray (SU)
