Raspberry Suite Color Challenge!

Have you been to Dawn's Blog?? She's hosting her first Color Inspiration Challenge! I always love her wonderful color combos, so this should be fun! Here's this week's challenge:

I just love pink and orange together. And brown, well, what's NOT to love?? When I looked at these colors...I translated them to PTI's Dark chocolate, Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, and SU!'s Pumpkin Pie.

Yesterday I took a little trip to M's to find something they apparently didn't have, so I used my 50% off coupon on that GREAT scallop punch from EK Success...I love how the handles fold down for storage!

So I got to work. Here's my creation:
I Saw this dress in Kohl's the other day...and thought - hey, why not? I used my With Sympathy set from PTI - a GREAT versatile set...along with the new anniversary set, Everyday Classics. Another lovely.

For the flowers I broke out my SU! Craft inks, although not a 'perfect' match for some of the colors...they're pretty close.

Thanks for stopping by today!! Hope you had a great weekend!

Stamps: With Sympathy, Everyday Classics
Ink: Fresh Snow, Pink Passion Craft, Only Orange Craft, Apricot Appeal Craft
Paper: PTI Dark Chocolate, Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, SU! Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: SU! White Tafeta ribbon, PTI vintage buttons

First of all - love your blog name. I laughed out loud. Also, how did you like that EK punch. I looked at some at Micheal's too but I just couldn't decide.

Love your card. Great clean lines.
