Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #9

Aren't these colors beautiful for this weeks challenge? I love this picture, this would inspire me as well to use these colors for this challenge. I was very inspired to make a masculine card because the colors are perfect and I never have enough of those. Who is with me here when I say that masculine cards are not easy to create. I always go into a creative block when I need a masculine card. Thanks for the inspiration Dawn to get my mojo flowing for this card.

As you can see, a very simple card. I don't feel you need a lot to please the eye sometimes. For this card, to make it appealing, it is all about the placement of the sentiment and the leaves. Having it offset from the center of the card makes you notice it more. To keep the background from being drab, I stamped THIS polka dot background by Hero Arts.



If you have some time. You need to take a look at this weeks entries for this challenge. There are some really beautiful cards in there. Scroll down on the post and just click on the individual names and it will take you to their card they made. Thanks for all the great inspiration ladies.
Supplies:
cardstock - Bazzill Basics Paper
stamps - Hero Arts (background and sentiment), Stampin Up! (leaves and frame)
ink - Memento

  1. Great CAS card--I love the textured cardstock. I struggle with masculine cards, too...that's why I also did a guy card with these colors.
