Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #10

Once again it is time for another Raspberry Suite color challenge, and once again I just love these colors. I know, I am a broken record, but Dawn does a fantastic job finding inspiration for these challenge. I always love the colors she chooses, and they are usually colors I don't normally pair together or gravitate toward.

I created this 4.25 x 4.25 inch card using Guidelines 2 to create the patterned paper. This is a stamp set I had to have, but at the same time it is intimidating...mostly because there is a whole lot of stamping and lining stuff up. This set was so much easier to use than I expected and you will definitely be seeing more of it in my posts *wink* - maybe in tomorrow's blog hop. I can't believe I won't be scrambling last minute to complete the challenge like usual.

Anyway without further adieu...

Supplies:
Paper: Melon Berry cardstock (PTI); Cream cardstock (Neenah); Chocolate Chip cardstock (SU!)
Ink: Vintage Cream, Berry Sorbet (PTI); Basic Brown ink, Chocolate Chip marker (SU!)
Stamps: Guidelines 2 and Mega Mixed Messages (PTI)
Extras: Berry Sorbet ribbon (PTI); Pearls (Mark Richards); Butterfly punch (Martha Stewart); Corner Rounder (SU!)

Gorgeous card! It's really hard for me to believe that is acutally stamped! Amazing!! You might have to do a lunch time tutorial on how to do it :0)
