Fifth Avenue Floral Card

Today I'm posting a card I made using Dawn McVey's latest Raspberry Suite Color Challenge as my inspiration. The colors she chose were very interesting and nothing that I would ever put together! I thought it was going to be a real challenge to use them but once I had them all on the table together, it wasn't so daunting! Hee! Here is what she challenged us with:

And here is the card I made:

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral set, Thank You Kindly set
Ink: Melon Mambo, Bravo Burgundy, Certainly Celery Classic inks
Paper: Very Vanilla, Melon Mambo, Bravo Burgundy, Certainly Celery cardstock
Accessories: Melon Mambo polkadot grosgrain ribbon, Dimensionals

I saw this card on Teneale Williams' blog earlier in the week and loved the simple design of it. I totally cased it! Hee! I also used my Fifth Avenue Floral set, which has been sadly neglected since I bought it... I had such plans of using it but every time I get it out, I have a hard time... I think the key is to keep it simple with this set... less is more! Hee!

Anyways, we are up for a busy Saturday! We are closing on our first house early next week so we are off to get some paint samples at Home Depot! I can't wait to decorate my girls' rooms! Hee! Then it's down to Scrapdoodles in Fredericksburg, VA for some shopping and to check out the new Quickutz machine- the Epic 6- they received theirs last week! I can't wait to get mine now! And after that, I get to go to dinner and crop at my good friend Dawnette's house... she is the most amazing cook! I'm excited to see what she comes up with tonight!

OK! Have a great weekend and I'll be back on Monday with some button inspired card- a special assignment for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol- I actually made the Top 10!!!
