Pretty card for a friend...

Today, I found some time to play along with Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge! I dug out one of my favorite retired colors... Wild Wasabi! Don't you wish some of those oldies would make a comeback? I am hoping for that someday... Anyways, here is what Dawn challenged us with this time:

And, here is what I made!

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Friends 24-7 set, En Francais background
Ink: Basic Black, Green Galore, Glorious Green (I had to mix them to look like Wild Wasabi which I don't have...), Barely Banana Classic inks; Versamark
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Basic Black cardstock; Candy Lane DSP
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Aqua Painter, Ice Circle Rhinestone brads, Valet ribbon originals, Scallop Edge punch, Dimensionals

I wasn't sure what to do with the colors in this challenge so I pulled out one of my favorite sets, played around for a few minutes and came up with this! It was a fun challenge, and since I really didn't have the matching ink, it was fun coming up with a solution to my problem!

Anyways, I'm keeping it short tonight... we got Twilight in the mail from Netflix today and I'm excited to watch it! I am currently reading the second book in the series and I think I'm hooked! I hope the movie does it justice.

Thanks for taking a peek!
