Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15

2 posts in one day!! Woo hoo!!

I haven't participated in Dawn McVey's color challenges all summer so I thought I'd try my hand at it once again :) We have been invited to a neighbor's house for a fun, old fashioned barbeque so I thought I should pick up a bouquet of beautiful flowers and make a card to thank my gracious hostess for opening up their home to us. And since summer barbeques always remind me of days gone by, I thought I'd try my hand at a little bit more of a vintage look with this challenge..

I used Papertrey Ink's Everyday Button Bits for the floral image and their Mega Mixed Messages stamp set for the sentiment..

PTI's Vintage Buttons in Melon Berry and Hibiscus allowed me to incorporate more color, in smaller doses..which is perfect in these kinds of challenges when you have know idea how to bring them all together!

I stamped the sentiment in Hibiscus ink onto Vintage Cream cardstock as well..

And to finish off my card, I stamped Polka Dot Basics ll onto Versmark ink and heat embossed it with filigree clear embossing powder.. I love the look it gives my cards!!

So that's my submission for this weeks' challenge! What do you think?
Have a great Sunday everyone!
