Another Post!

I just had to try and make another card for Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color combo. I was not happy with my original and ended up making TWO...count em'...TWO more cards. The one doesn't "qualify" really since I changed the vanilla color to white. However, it's my favorite card of the bunch.

Stamps:Verve Plain Jane and Anniversary Birds, Small Sayings (SU)
Ink: Choc Chip craft, Rose Red
Paper: Me and My Big Ideas DP, Kraft, Vanilla
Other: Scallop Circle Nesties, Cuttlebug, paper piercer, ribbon, Flowers, Build A Brad, dimensionals

Stamps: Say It With Scallops
Ink: Pink Passion, Choc Chip
Paper: Kraft, MMBI DP, White
Other: Buttons, American Crafts Brown Grosgrain, Embroidery Floss, Ric Rac, Signo Gel Pen, Scallop Square punch, dimensionals, scalloped edge punch

For this last card, I created my own scalloped rectangle and then mounted it on a scrap of folded kraft that was left over from my very first card. Love using scraps. That brown ribbon on the top card is also a scrap. That just makes me happy. What will make my husband happy is if I emerge from the basement and head outside. Funs over:) See you tomorrow!

Both cards are lovely, but I like the second one best. I like that the white "rick-rack wave" complements the entire card's outside border shape.
