Raspberry Suite Challenge #4

Here is this week's challenge for Dawn Mcvey...look at these great colors!!



And here is my card!!



I had fun with my white ink and Kraft cardstock. This was my first time doing that combination and I really like it. Although some of my polka dots look a bit splotchy, like I had too much ink on the stamp. Live and learn!! The stamps are from Papertrey Ink, as is the kraft and the polka dots paper and the buttons! The brown paper is Bazzill. Very simple and done, LOL!!!

Hope you had a great National Scrapbooking Day yesterday. We had a busy day doing family/kid stuff but I did manage to get that card finished! Now more family stuff today and the weather is beautiful. So we will be outside for sure!!

Thanks for stopping by!
