Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #6


I needed to make a belated Mother's day card today (I'm behind on everything!) So I thought I would try to incorporate Dawn McVey's color challenge into my card. Although my Mom would probably have preferred purple instead of Berry Sorbet, I think she'll like this card just the same :0). I really wanted to try a different ribbon treatment, I think the card looks a little heavy on the right side, but my sewing machine crapped out on me :0( Need to get that fixed in a hurry. I'm missing it way too much! I think the card is pretty self explanatory. Not a lot of oohs and aahs, I created the flower by just cutting out some circles in 3 different sizes with the nestabilities and scrunched them up to give them a worn look. The button in the center is actually white, but looks pink in the pic. Thanks for looking!

Recipe:
Stamps: Verve
Ink: Memento Brown
Paper: SU!
Accessories: SU!
