Raspberry Suite

It's been a while since I've gotten to play with Dawn's Raspberry Suite challenge, but I carved out a bit of time this weekend to create something. Aqua Mist and Lemon Tart together is my favorite combination! So, as soon as I saw Dawn's colors, I knew I'd wanted to play along.
Here's the challenge:


And here is my card.



I used Vintage Labels, Background Basics Text Style, and Mega Mixed Messages on this one. The ribbon is Aqua Mist Grosgrain. I did a fun thing with the buttons. I created little decorative pins with them. I just slid some of the smallest vintage buttons onto some Making Memories pins and added a glue dot onto the last ones, this holds the rest up. Then, I stuck the pins into the bow.

I'm off to check out all of the great cards people made for the challenge. Be sure to check back this week. I'll be posting some Zva projects along with some Webster's Sneaks. You're not going to want to miss this!!
