Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #7


When I made this card, I guess I was feeling a little sentimental, corny, whatever you want to call it.

This is my take on Dawn McVey's latest Color Challenge. I haven't used my Limitless Limbs stamp set very often. This idea came to me right away and I went with it. It was meant to look like all the love is falling out of the tree (except for one little heart that is hanging on) because I miss you so much! Who do I miss? I dunno! Who will I ever send this to? No one probably! How corny is it? Pretty corny! :-)

The sentiment is hard to read because white was not a color we could use so I sponged the raspberry fizz bitty dots paper with ripe avocado ink. The sentiment is also stamped in ripe avocado ink. It was late and my sponging is a little heavy! You can see it in person but it doesn't show up as well in this picture.



Supply List:
Stamps - Limitless Limbs (Pink Cat Studio), Scripty Words (Kim Hughes Collection - CHF), Polka Dot Basics (PTI)
Paper - Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, Raspberry Fizz Bitty Dots (all PTI)
Ink - Ripe Avocado, Raspberry Fizz (both PTI)
Ribbon - Ripe Avocado, Raspberry Fizz (both PTI)

I don't think it's corny ... I think it's adorable.
