Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #3





Boy was it fun making this card for this week's challenge. It has been a long time since I hand stitched on a card or scrapbook page. I was totally loving it and now all sorts of ideas are popping into my head to incorporate more hand stitching into my everyday crafting.
I was a little hesitant with the colors though this week, but I was thinking if you keep them to a minimum they could look very nice on a kraft background. Other people know how to incorporate more of these colors into their cards and make it look good, but I am better to keep them in little amounts, especially when it is colors I don't typically use a lot. You know, that is what makes these challenges so much fun, it pushes us beyond what we typically do and makes us think of other color combos we aren't familiar with.
Supplies:
CS - Stampin Up!
Stamp - Hero Arts
Floss - DMC
Ink - Memento
Brad - Brand ?, got it from Paper Wishes
