Raspberry Suite #9

I hope you had a great weekend! We did. Among other things, we visited and joined the Philadelphia Zoo. Ryan is really into animals right now, so we know we'll get a lot of use out of it this summer. It was a lot of fun!

This week's Raspberry Suite Challenge was a lot of fun. We had to use New Leaf, Black and Cream. It's a great color combo! Here's my card:




The butterflies are Heidi Swapp and the big flourish stamp is from PTI's Fancy Flourishes. The sentiment is from the Wishing You set. The crystals are Zva.

This next card is one that I made for a friend's son. He just graduated from college. I used the Star Prints set for the stars and sentiment, a Maya Road chipboard frame that I glittered and Polka Dot basics for the border.




Don't forget to head over to Label Tulip tonight for the big reveal. Also, there is a fun way to win some goodies over there. Simply upload projects into the member's gallery. They can be made with the kit or without. Each month one of the DT members chooses a page for the team to lift. If your page is chosen, you could win a $10 gift certificate!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love both of these cards. Love your the butterflies fly off the end of the card. I love the color combo of the star card and how the sentiment is the focal point.

The zoo idea is great. We'll be doing some of that this summer. Maybe not enough to get a pass but more than last year since I'll be home this summer with the baby. Have fun!!!
