Rasberry Suite Color Challenge

EDIT: Ok so maybe I should have LOVED my card a little more and over time I did change my mind! But I had to post a little note in here and tell you all how excited I am.....because Dawn loved it too! Thank you Dawn!! How exciting!! She picked mine in her top 12 out of 152 cards! I bet she has no idea how she made my day!! :) You can go see her color challenge spotlight HERE! :)

One of my most favorite blogs is Dawn McVey's! She creates sooo many beautiful things and her blog is just alot of fun to check every day! She has started to do her own Color Challenges, so I thought I should jump in on one and see what I can do! Well, the first one I picked was pretty hard! It definitley was a "challenge"! Here is her color swatch:


I love all of these colors so I gave it a try. I played with them in different layers and different sizes but this is what I came up with! I am not totally happy with it but I love the layout! It is a little like Heather's Sketch but not totally! :)


I used The Angel Company's Aged Ornaments and Versamark for the background on the Kraft Paper. Then I placed the other colors....berry, vanilla, red and light pink....on the layers!



I am not going to give up! Just because this card isn't my favorite, there will always be another color challenge! Ok Dawn! I can't wait for the next one! :)

Thanks for looking!
