Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #5

Good morning and Happy Saturday! I absolutely love sleeping in on Saturdays... not to say that I sleep in late (this whole being an adult thing and waking up at the same time my alarm goes off even though it isn't even set thing really stinks!). But it felt nice to lay in bed and realize that I had nowhere to be, no one waiting for me. I could lay there as long as I wanted.

I really wanted to play along with Dawn McVey's color challenge for this week. The colors she chose are ones that I would probably have never thought to use together, but I really like how this turned out! I definitely had to play with them a bit, and I tried using a few different sketches, but they required too many dp papers or decorative backgrounds. With such bright colors, I needed the layout to be a bit simpler this week. Enter Taylor's Cupcake Challenge! I love to play along with her sketches, but have been sadly absent from them since January! Ah! It was definitely time to break that long silence.

I stamped the image in Regal Rose and sponged some Berry Sorbet onto the ends for a little shading. The dp is Bitty Dots by Papertreyink in Raspberry Fizz. I didn't have any coordinating ribbon, so I pulled out some white grossgrain and colored it with my copic markers. Lastly, I added a little bling with a row of rhinestones from Michael's.... love those things.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
