Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge!

Hi everyone!

I didn't post yesterday because it w
as April Fool's Day and I have a real aversion to that day! Can't explain it, but I'm sure it all goes back to mother!! haha!!

I have to say that because she reads this occasionally and I think she will get a laugh out of it!

All right, the real story is, I have just been working on a few more projects than usual. Little Paper Shop is having their One Year Anniversary coming up in April and Julia has some FUN surprises planned so stay tuned!! I will be sure to keep you posted!!

I made this card for Dawn McAvey's colour challenge, but boo-hoo, I was too late ! When will I learn to read the fine print?!! lol!

Here are the colours and my card using my NEW stamp set from Papertrey Ink called Damask Designs. I know, I know there are no Damasks on this card but the sentiment is from that set and they are such a nice size to use.

The designer paper with the big flowers is from Tinkering Ink and I have had it awhile, in my closet, but it is so pretty I had to break it out and use it today!

The little bitty dot designer paper is from Papertrey Ink and is called, weirdly enough, Bitty Dot Basics!! Imagine calling a paper that has itty bitty dots on it Bitty Dot Basics...who'd a thunk it?!

The cardstock is Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate, Ocean
s Tides and Stampers Select white - all Papertrey Ink cardstock as well as the sentiment ink which is Fresh Snow.

Well, I hope no one played any dirty tricks on you yesterday, like cardboard sandwiches or saran on the toilet seat!!

Have a good day!

    This is so pretty! The colours are so tropical :)

  3. Love your card - I'm drawn to those colours.

  4. I am loving this card Bonnie!!! The colors are amazing and I love the giant flower paper! The papers work so perfectly for this layout and I adore the elegant sentiment! Fantastic job!


  5. Ouuuuuueee! That is one hot colour combo. Love that flower & your layout is pure class, as usual. :O)

  6. LOVE the colors!!!

  7. O.K. that Razberry Suite sounded so pretty and then they had to hit me with that bold brown color!!! Ickkkkkkk!!! LOL!!!!

    Well despite the unfortunate colors your card turned out amzingly pretty and very inspiring if I can change the colors up!!!!!

    I always enjoy your creations Bonnie!!!


  8. This is so pretty Bonnie! I love that color combo! No tricks on me, but my 5 year old switched the contents of his dads Special K with his Fruit Loops. Too bad he'd been dropping hints all week like, "dad, better watch your cereal"...or yelling up the stairs to me, "hey mom, can we switch the cereal now?" He doesn't get the "secret" thing yet...

  9. Oh, this is gorgeous!
