Raspberry Suite #16



I saw Dawn's newest color challenge while I was on vacation! I was so anxious to get home and play with these awesome colors! We got home a little after 7pm last night! After getting the car unloaded and getting settled back in at home, I camped out in my craft room while I waited for some clothes to finish! That was about midnight or later! :) My eyes were so droopy but I was determined that I was going to get some crafting done!

This card is for our friend, Cathy, who came over to take care of our animals and get the mail for us while we were gone!

Thanks to all of you who checked in and followed my play by play of our vacation! :) I took a notepad so I could make notes about our trip (for a scrapbook) but ended up just blogging instead!

We had a great time but we are all glad to be back home! If I can just get all the laundry done and toys, etc. washed up... I will be one happy gal!

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps - Fancy Flourishes, Mixed Messages
Paper - Kraft, Chocolate Remix
Ink - Dark Chocolate
Other - Summer Sunrise ribbon, Jute Twine, SU Butterfly Die, Rhinestones, Corner Rounder, AC Brown Button

All that vacationing AND you kicked out this beautiful card: just like that, huh! You ROCK, Kelly! {My mojo gets obliterated when I've been away! Takes me almost a week to find "card making girl"} But never mind that.. This card is WONDERFUL! These colors are so amazing and perfect together and you REALLY made them seem even HAPPIER in this lil' card! Your house/animal sitter is going to be thrilled!

Hugs,

Super cute Kelly. I love the sentiments going up the side.

Janelle said...

Cute card, Kelley. The sentiment up the side is very clever -- and love the rhinestone accents on the flourish. Glad you had a safe trip home! (By the way, how are you feeling?)

Jane said...

so pretty!!

Winter said...

Hey Kelley! Glad ya'll made it home safe, I missed you! :) This card is so cute! I LOVE that ribbon! :)

Alanna said...

This is so pretty Kelley. I love that flourish stamp and really should put it on my must have list, especially after seeing what you've done with it. Great job on Dawn's color challenge.

Alanna said...

Oh, and I forgot to welcome you back from your vacation.

welcome back!!!! Fabbie card Kelley...I love the ribbon and the butterfly!

Kim J. said...

Seriously beautiful! Love the butterfly with the flourishes.

Stephanie said...

You are hard core!!! Staying in the craft room until midnight - my eyes would've been closing and the head a'bobbin :)

But.....your card came out gorgeous (you little talented stinkpot!!) I love the flourish coming from butterfly and how you jazzed it up with some bling :)

Hope everything is settling down - I'm enjoying my extra day off to get caught up on crafting, school work, and (ugh) laundry...my problem is that I put one load in and completely forget about it for a few hours b/c the craft room is two floors above the laundry! {{Hugs}}

Ann said...

SO pretty, Kelley!

Maureen said...

love the ribbon and flourish...gorgeous on kraft!

Kristina said...

Oh, Kelley! This is so beautiful!! I love the little jewels sprinked amongst the flourish! And that ribbon (with polka dots!!!) is so perfect!

Amanda Winkelman said...

Oh, Kelley! This card is AMAZING! It's simply beautiful! I vote that it's one of Dawn's top picks for sure! Hope you're doin' well! I sent you an email a little bit ago......it should explain things a bit!

It's Jenn! said...

What a great use of the color combo. So I went out the other day while we were in FL (their Michaels is sooooo much better than ours!) and bought some silky ribbon. I see these on cards and it really adds so much! I only got green, but it was $1....I couldn't pass it up!

Gorgeous! I love the pattern on the butterfly and the jewels are perfectly placed. Love it!
