Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #19

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I'm sitting here completely STUFFED and suddenly realized I never got around to posting my Raspberry Suite Color Challenge Card, so thought I'd quickly share that with you before the deadline tomorrow!! I'll keep this short and sweet so I can get back my family time today!!

You can find the challenge details over on Dawn's Post. The challenge was to use Raspberry, Light Aqua, Moss, Lavendar and Chocolate. I stayed somewhat within the challenge guidelines except for the light aqua - I couldn't find anything that I thought qualifed as "light aqua", so I substituted SU's tempting turquoise, which I felt still worked well with the other colors and could actually be seen in the inspiration photo if you look closely! ;-) So here's my card (sorry the photo is kinda washed out, I had to take the pic after dark and this is the best I could do!):I used PTI's Dark Chocolate, Spring Moss, Raspberry Fizz, and White CS in addition to the SU Tempting Turquoise CS. I cheated a little because this card is actually a CASE of myself. you can see my original card HERE using Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch #29. (still one of my all-time favorite go-to sketches!!). I used PTI's Everyday Button Bits with Raspberry Fizz and Lavendar Moon buttons. I also used Polka Dot Basics II, stamped in Fresh Snow Ink - another of my favorite looks - on this card.

Well, that's it for me! I hope you all had a fabulous Turkey Day!! I'll be back tomorrow (actually SEVERAL TIMES tomorrow) with lots of fun things to share, including a few Blog Hops and a new release from Verve!!
