Another Raspberry Suite Challenge Card

I made another card using Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21 combo. I just love the look of these light and breezy colors together: dark chocolate, aqua mist, lemon tart, and vintage cream.
Again, I apologize for the poor pictures. The lighting in my new craft room is not good at all and I don't own a light tent. I guess I will have to start taking the cards outside for better pictures!
I'm in love with this focal flower. They were cut using my brand-new Cricut with the basic letters and shapes cartridge. That tag shape was also cut from the basic shapes cartridge and then I cut the top off of it to go behind the flower without showing. The crochet flower is one I've been hoarding in my stash for way too long now. It fits perfectly on this card front.
I stamped flourishes in Aqua Mist on the background. I asked my husband's opinion on a couple different colors for it and he chose that one. It's kind of fun to get him in on the craftiness sometimes! :)
The sentiment is from Everyday Button Bits (of course!) and the yellow flower isn't glued down; I just sort of curled the petals with my fingers.
I don't normal do cards in this size but maybe I should in the future because it was a fun base to work with.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. LOVE the crocheted flower middle! Nice card!

  2. Fun texture on this card. Way to rock Dawn's color combo.

    It's a good life!
