Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #16

I've missed out on several of Dawn McVey's color challenges recently, but when I saw #16 one I knew I just HAD to make time to participate. These colors are right up my alley!!! Check them out:
I also had several PTI sets that I thought I would DIE if I didn't purchase but haven't been able to use as much as I'd like, so this seemed like a good excuse to get them all good and inky!! Personally I think I should get extra credit for the most stamp sets used on a single card EVER (by me anyway!!). I spent some time this weekend doing some organizing in my craft space and have a whole stack of cards to add to my Etsy shop (which has been empty for almost a year because I'm too lazy to deal with it). As I was going through boxes and boxes of cards, I came across one of my favorites and set it aside to be CASE'd. This card is a CASE of myself (although I'm pretty sure the original sketch might have been an old Sketch For You To Try by Jen del Muro). I really like this layout (click on the photo to see it larger):

Supplies:
Stamps: Polka Dot Basics, Damask Designs, Bird Watching Additions, Background Basics: Text Style, Everyday Button Bits (PTI)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Very Vanilla, So Saffron CS (SU)
Ink: So Saffron (SU); Momento Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko); Versafine Vintage Sepia (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Chocolate Chip twill, Scallop border punch (SU); hobby blade; 3-D Adhesive

Great card- and you cracked me up with the comment about having stamps that you might have died without getting, but hardly using! Ha! That wouldn't be as funny if I didn't have the same affliction!!
Congrats on the spotlight!!!
