Raspberry Suite Color Challenge & HA Blog Challenge

The Raspberry Suite Color challenge has such lovely colors this week...

I know I don't use them alot but I truly love pinks all shade of pink. I loved the colors in this challenge and it tied into a challenge on the HA blog. The HA blog challenge is to be inspired by another designer in the group. I picked this card from Annette: She makes the most beautiful cards and uses her colors so wonderfully. I have been wanting to use the pink sponging ever since I saw this card she created.

Here is my case of her card and the colors from the Raspberry Suite challenge:

I also tried out my new light box. I don't think it is as nice as my outdoor shots when it is sunny, but will be a good alternative for the gloomy days.

  • Memento - Rose Bud
  • Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots
  • Hero Arts Design Block - Silhouette
  • Versafine - Smokey Grey
  • Clear Embossing Powder
  • Hero Arts - Fanciful Leaf Filament
  • Versamark Watermark Ink
  • Uni-Ball White Gel Pen
  • Lace Trim, Charms, Ribbon (Unknown)

We are having gusty winds and rain off and on today. (Little cooler too!) I thought I would share a few more pictures of the spring flowers that are finally here in our yard! Yeah!
