First ever Rasberry Suite Color Challenge!

Happy Wednesday or as I have learnt though blogging Hump day (seriously never heard that before!)  Thank you for all your sweet comments regarding my last post with the 7 interesting facts about me!  It always makes my day to read your comments!

Today I have a card to share.  I did my first card for the Rasberry Suite Color Challenge!  Here are the colors to play with:



What wonderful colors!  I was thrilled that in my stash I had the colors to play with it!  :>  Here is my card:



I don't know why but my blog won't let me go back to the left and if forcing me to type center! I shall be back after my shift to fix this and talk about the card!

Edited to add:

Well I am back!  I had to quickly post before running to work.  I had a last minute shift so I had to post the card otherwise I would have missed the challenge!

I am really digging my SU Butterfly Die right now and had to make a card with it!  This is one of the those cards that you start and have it half done and than leave it because your baby breaks his sister's piggybank and you have to get there and pick up that  money as fast as you can before he eats it!  So I kept walking by  it and thinking.  I had stamped the cream with one of my new Hero Arts 2010 stamps Cling Dots in brown and had the butterflies all cut out and than I had the idea to make the sentiment with a tail.  And I thought it would be a great way to add more yellow!  I also embossed all the butterflies, the brown and blue with Swiss Dots and the yellow with SU Texture Plates Dots.  And there you have it!  Such a fun card! 

Products used:  Bazill cardstock, PTI buttons, HA Cling Dots and HA Sentiment, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug, SU Texture plates Dots, michaels ribbon!
