Raspberry Suite Color Challenge

Hi Friends,

I’ve not really played in a color challenge recently, so when I saw Dawn’s, I figured it was time to get back into it.  I really liked the colors she chose (Papertrey Ink: Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, cream, and Chocolate).  Yummy!6a00e54ef2e2998833012876ace4a1970c-500wi

Here’s what I came up with:


I embossed the leaves with Zing chocolate. And I tell you it was so difficult. There were so many stray particles that if I hadn’t been cutting it out, it wouldn’t have been useable.  Oh the frustrations of embossing powder.

Now, indulge my love of football for a second, or just sign off or skip down… I was thrilled to see Peyton Manning selected as the league MVP for a record 4th time!! Woohoo.  We love our Colts and are excited/nervous for the playoffs. We do know that we’ll be playing the New York Jets which I am quite excited about. They gave the Colts their first loss (after the Colts put in their JV squad!)  We were so frustrated that the coaches/owners decided to throw the game to rest the players… Grrrr.  Well, now there will be a chance for retribution.

Enough of my football speak.  I need to go to bed, gotta get up early to worship the Lord!  Have a blessed Lord’s day tomorrow.

Cute Card! I love the little flowers made out of book pages. I actually made some for a card I have coming up!

Ok on a side note I am extremely excited about the Jets. We played a ggod game yesterday but I am taking it one day at a time. I really like Peyton, he is such an outstanding individual on and off the field! Glad to find another die-hard sports, crafting fan. They are few and far between!

Gorgeous, vibrant card! I'm glad you stuck with the embossing powder even if it was a pain - those leaves have turned out great!

Beautiful!! Do you use an embossing buddy? That has helped me a ton with my embossing! I had kindof given up on embossing until I got my embossing buddy!! Makes a huge difference! Your card is gorgeous!!
