CPS and Raspberry Suite Color Challenges

Hi. Happy Sunday. We went to church last night so it's been nice just lounging around the house this morning. I got a couple of cards done and thought I'd share them.
This first card is based off Dawn McVey's new color challenge. As you know, I love Dawn and her designs. So, I used her Damask Design stamps (again, I know, I can't stop...) on this card. Head over to her blog to see what other people have done with this awesome color combo.





This next card is based on this week's CPS sketch. I actually had meant to put another strip of the die cut scallop border along the bottom of the pink panel, but forgot. So, it started off looking more like the sketch. Oh well. That's what I love about sketches. They can inspire you, but your card may end up looking totally different that the original design.




Well, I'd best go do something productive.:) A sink full of dishes is calling my name. Ugh! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Both cards are beautiful. It really shows how diverse you are! I love the flower pin and the great use of buttons on the challenge card. Great job on the color combo.
