Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21

So happy that another Raspberry Suite Color Challenge as been posted. And I have to tell you, I am in love with these colors. It took no time to come up with a card design because these colors were so fun to work with. Thanks for the inspiration, Dawn McVey.

I got a new Quickutz butterfly die from Two Peas last week and it is my new favorite. I am so in love with butterflies right now it isn't even funny and when 2Peas has Quickutz on sale I just had to have this die.
And thanks to Dawn's awesome tutorial on how to tie bows, I finally got the bow I have always wanted to tie. To think that it was so easy to do, but I just couldn't master it on my own. I think it is the flipping of the ribbon to make it lie flat after you make that first tie that made all the difference. Thanks, Dawn, will forever love making bows now.


And if you look closely, you can see that I made a plaid background with my Background Basics:Retro stamp set and my lemon tart and aquamist ink pads. So fun to do and love how it turned out.
Hope you all have a great weekend!!
Supplies:
cardstock, ribbon, stamps, ink - Papertrey Ink
border punch - EKSuccess
butterfly die - Quickutz
die machine - Epic 6 by Quickutz
