Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge #17 for World Card Making Day
I had a lovely World Card Making day in my craft room making cards. My sweet hubby Owen kept me supplied with drinks, made my lunch - and even ironed the ribbon for this card!
I've not taken part in Dawn's colour challenges before but I decided to try this particular challenge today. I always like seeing kraft CS used on cards but I don't use it myself enough. At first I thought this challenge would be a real toughie as I wouldn't have put these colours together myself but this card came together quite painlessly, I'm so glad I decided to take part!
The hearts are popped up with 3d foam tape. I added a red heart brad to the aqua heart. The scalloped border was made using the Sizzix Lace Edging die. The wide aqua ribbon came from a mixed pack of Anna Griffin stitched grosgrain which was a gift from my good friend Kevin. The 3 dots are Pebbles Inc. self adhesive Candy Dots.
I gave this card to Owen to say thank you for his constant encouragement and support, just to let him know his care is much appreciated! Well, not every hubby would iron ribbon would they?!
I hope you had a happy World Card Making Day too!
