Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #9


Another color challenge from Dawn McVey! I love these colors, but of course when I went to sit down with them I was itching to throw some Kraft cardstock in. I resisted that urge, but my craft table is piled high with green, black, and cream ribbons, papers and accents - does that happen to anyone else?

I just got this pom pom ribbon at Archiver's this weekend. It was one of those "it's green" (my favorite color) purchases. Plus I have been seeing the pom poms everywhere and I was determined to make a card using it. The chipboard letters were a $1.99 spot purchase at Archiver's as well. It just didn't look right with just the pom pom and the letters, so I put a Heidi Swapp flower under the letters and added some stamping with Retro Basics. I could have added more, but the clean and simple cardmaker in me called shot clock and I determined that I was done.
Hope you like it! Off to see what you created!
Supplies:
Cardstock: Stampin Up
Stamp: Retro Basics (Papertrey Ink)
Chipboard Letters: Pressed Petals
Flower: Heidi Swapp
Ink: Memento
