Raspberry Suite Color Challenge 13

Here's my card for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge.

I looked through my stack of American Crafts paper and saw a sheet that had this big flower on it and thought it fit the color challenge exactly. I cut it out and colored in the tips of the stamens in the center. They were yellow so I used my Signo white gel pen, which I love, to cover the yellow since that color isn't part of the challenge. It turned out pretty good.



Greg came home last week with 2 packs of Martha Stewart paper for me. I used a sheet of the green & white polka dot paper in that pack for the background. Then I cut the edge of the card with my Fiskars ripple scissors and added a strip of the green paper to the inside edge to make the ripple cut show. I stamped Happy Birthday in red ink and used my Cropodile to add the eyelets and ran the ribbon through it. I tried several times to tie a bow, but they all looked horrible so I went with my standard knot. Bows just are not my forte. And that's it!
