RSCC15 - Thanks so Much

Hope everyone's having a great week so far. The hubs and I are just chilling (each in front of our respective computers... such dorks I know!)

It's been awhile since I've had the time or inclination for that matter to play in the color challenges but I decided that I needed to get back into stretching my comfort zone. :)

So I have just a fun little card to share today with this weeks Raspberry Suite Color Challenge! We were to use melon, cream, moss, and a med pink. Hmm... such pretty colors until I saw how BRIGHT hibiscus actually is. And I just wasn't feeling bright tonight so I tried to minimize it to be just my accent colors (ribbon, flowers, sentiment)

I stamped one of the images from Life repeatedly in both Hibiscus and Melon Berry onto some cream cardstock. I added some leaves in spring moss just so it wasn't a sea of pinkness! Also to give it some depth, I stamped each image twice so you see some "lighter" flowers.

I used some fun ribbon I had laying around that I felt was very close to the Hibiscus color (and I couldn't find any hibiscus ribbon... the horrors! I will have to fix that on my next order). Stamped my sentiment on some hibiscus paper and popped it on!

Such a cool, different LO Belinda. Your little knot bow makes me smile.I would never have thought to put hib. burst with melon berry, but it really works! I am scared of this challenge, but your card has me feeling confident that I can do it too!
