Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge #18


I can never resist Dawn's colour challenges, but I was a bit nervous about this one. I wasn't quite sure about that green, but I think it looks good now that the card's done. Once I saw this colour combo I knew I wanted to use the colour to copy this flower card that Dana Grothaus had made. She has the dimensions for all the petals on her blog if you want to make one too:) I thought that I would use one of my fabric flowers in the center to incorporate the pink and then of course the "petals" would have to be leaves, thus the green (that I was afraid of:) I think it's pretty cute, I'm kind of loving cards without sentiments on the front right now. Maybe I could put something on one of the leaves....or maybe I'll leave it as is...what do you think?

Card Details:
-chocolate chip, old olive, soft suede, and very vanilla cardstock
-Bazill pink fabric flower
-old olive dsp
-Corner rounder punch
-Clear button and twine from SU!

This is so graphic and fabulous!! Love it!! I think a sentiment would take away from the simple beauty of it...there's always the inside for that :)
