Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #8

Here are the fun, beautiful colors we get to play with this week for Dawn's color challenge. That chair is gorgeous and the pink color in it is the first color I see when I look at the chair, even though the chair is predominantly tan. I wanted to make my card like that as well. I wanted the pink in the card to pop out at you and be the first thing you look at when you see my card. I hope I succeeded in that attempt.



It was so fun to create with these colors. I am a sucker for pink when it comes to cards because I don't get to use it a whole lot on my scrapbook pages having only one girl and three boys. But with cards, I get to use it more for all the wonderful girls and ladies in my life that I can make cards for. Thanks again for another great challenge, Dawn!!
For the flower in this card I first cut out three different sized circles and then I notched out little sections around the circles to make petals. It isn't perfectly done, but that is what I like about it. And then I inked around the edges to make the petals stand out more. And finally I curved up the petals on each of the layers to add depth to my flower and added a large brad. Fun and easy.
Supplies:
cardstock - Stampin Up!
stamps - Papertrey Ink, Hero Arts (sentiment)
ink - Colorbox
gems - Hero Arts
border punch - Stampin Up!
brad - ?
