Good morning! It's a beautiful Saturday here in Connecticut, and before I head to the beach, I wanted to share my creation for the latest Raspberry Suite Color Challenge from Dawn McVey.
This challenge has a lot more neutral colors than I usually use together, but I thought it was a great combination that speaks to the fall weather that's been creeping in at night! All of the products I used are from PTI, with the exception of the clear crystal dots and the Stardust Stickles, both from Hope Stamps Eternal. Oh, and the adhesive foam dots used to pop up the umbrella are from HSE too.
It's a little tricky to see in the photo, but the Summer Sunrise background is stamped with one of the images from the Background Basics: Retro set. The umbrella and sentiment are of course from Dawn's Scattered Showers set. After I completed the card, I was wishing I had put the umbrella straight instead of at an angle, because I think it disrupts an otherwise very symmetrical card, but then maybe that's a good thing. Who knows!
Everything else is pretty straightforward, I just wanted to mention one other thing the camera didn't really pick up. The flowers on the umbrella are all covered with Stardust Stickles, so there's some nice sparkle to the card in real life.
All in all, a quick and easy card that challenged me to combine colors I never had before, which is the whole point of the challenge!
Thanks for looking - be sure to come back tomorrow for the latest Cupcake Inspiration Challenge!
