Card for Raspberry Suite Challenge #21

From Adriel:

I haven't participated in a challenge recently and this color challenge on Dawn McVey's blog looked fun. It was a great excuse to get creative and do something different!
The colors were so refreshing to work with! Since I was using Stampin' Up! product, I had to improvise with the colors. I used some retired designer paper in So Saffron and last year's in color Baja Breeze. I had pleated (or ruffled) the designer paper strips. I had this awesome wide striped Chocolate Chip ribbon that we got recently, scrunched it, tied a beautiful light yellow button on and it looked just as awesome on the card as it did on the spool! (Yes, love it when that happens.) Clear embossed a couple of flower images from the Fifth Avenue Floral set on the Very Vanilla CS and added the great sentiment from the Priceless set. Added dimensional adhesive to the back of the Very Vanilla panel and attached it to my 3-1/2" x 5" Chocolate Chip card base.


My picture isn't the greatest, but then again, I didn't take it at the greatest time of day! It was evening... I did my best with my photo editing software to make it look decent. Hmmmm... my perfectionist part of me has to sleep right now while I post a not-perfect picture! Ack! ;-)

Anyway, had a great time with these colors and enjoyed the creative process! Enjoyed myself more than I should have, I'm sure! =D
