Raspberry Suite #11

I was a little nervous when I saw the colors for this week. Five colors?!!! Seriously? So last night I made some just to create (which was fun) and tonight I tackled the colors challenge. Out came all the paper and embellies that had these colors.


What resulted was a card that has a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I love mixing manfacturers. All of the flowers are from Prima and I layered them myself. I capped them with a fabric brad from K and Company (I am addicted to the fabric covered brads). The paper is from PTI and Stampin Up, the ribbon is from Michaels and the stickers are Making Memories.
I need to increase my stash of birthday cards....so that was my self imposed challenge as well. Hope you liked it!

It's fabulous! And hey, if a challenge doesn't work out for you, there's always next week (or next year in Cubbie lingo...).

Great job, Katie! Your work always floors me! So beautiful and elegant! I guess a little concern when we contemplate the challenge REALLY does bring out our best! WTG!

You came up with a wonderful card, Katie!! I really love the embossed grey...looks quite chic! And your layered flower topped with a beautiful fabric brad from K&Co is a beautiful focal point. I have some of those brads and I always have trouble using them....more like I'm having trouble parting with them! :> Fantastic challenge card! :>
