Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #3

I am so excited I had time to do Dawn Mcvey's color challenge this week!!


I just ordered some kraft cardstock from Papertrey Ink and could not wait to get started!! I also just got some of these little tins and decided to use one of those as well.


I struggled a bit with the color combo until I just decided to stop being so critical!! Ha ha!! I really like the combo and will absolutely use it again. I filled the little tin with jelly beans, gotta love all that Easter candy out right now.


I also had a tough time with those ribbon bows. Need some more practice with those for sure!!! You should definitely check out Dawn's blog, she is throwing out color challenges that are fun to work with. Thanks for stopping by!!

Thanks for your kind comment. I've come by to return the visit and oh wow!! I like your card, it's so cute and so is the tin...but oh my I love your pages!!! I don't scrapbook but after seeing your work I'm tempted to start...your children are adorable and I LOVE that green tea page. I see I'm going to have to come back to see more of your work.
