Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #13
this weeks color challenge by Dawn McVey and knew I had to participate. The soap box was so cool and bright vintage, so I decided to go little more elegant and layery than usual. I stamped the flower from Friends Til the End on Berry cardstock and then colored it in with red copics. After I finished up the flower I added some pearls to the center and left some of the berry cardstock showing. I also stamped the leaves on Moss cardstock and outlined them with a yellow green copic. I popped up the flower with leaves and added swirled pearls form Prima on Bitty dot paper that I stamped with white text to make it a little more elegant. The frame was created using the apron lace punch (I am so addicted to border punches especially of the scallop variety.
