Raspberry Suite and 2S4Y

A funny thing happened on my way to completing these challenges! I started off this card using Dawn's color challenge and Kazan's sketch.





Well, the card didn't really end up resembling the sketch, so I figured I'd just use it for Dawn's challenge. So, I went back and looked at her blog again and I realized I totally forgot to add the Ripe Avocado. Hee hee! So, it ended up not working for either challenge! But, I like how it turned out, so I decided to just make another card to use for them.

Here's the first card:




I used PTI Damask Design stamps along with Raspberry Fizz paper and ribbon and Spring Moss paper.

Here is my card that actually fit the challenges. I liked the white background, so I kept that.




I used the same papers as the above card. The sentiment is PTI Mega Mixed Messages.
Both cards use Zva crystals that I colored with my Copic markers. I love how I can change the colors of them so easily. I definitely need to invest in some more markers. ;)

Well, thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Oh I hate when that happens. Muse just pushes you in another direction- but sometimes those are my favorite cards. So yeah, maybe I don't "hate" it when that happens. LOL

As always - your cards are beautiful. Always inspirational!

milkcan said...

Wow! So gorgeous! Those cards are works of art!

KimmyS said...

What are you talking about?? Of course the card worked for the sketch. The main thing is that you took inspiration from the sketch - that is what counts.
Anyway, I ramble - I love both cards. They are awesome and I glad you submitted them!

Linda Beeson said...

Wow, Anabelle - these are just plain gorgeous! That first one is actually "royal"! What great accents.
