Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #8

I love these color challenges! This time I am getting it in just in time ... so this will be a quickie post! Here are the colors:
Here is my take on it:
Clear embossed polka dots on kraft with dark chocolate scalloped border. I love clear embossing on kraft!
The flower is the 3 nested flower shabeabilities dies. So cute! The pipe cleaner was cream colored, and I colored it with my copic marker to make is raspberry fizzy, I left some cream showing through to match the leaves and the brown wire shows through to match the brown elements! Pipe cleaner is fun!
I cut the leaves free hand from vanilla card stock and stamped one half on the greeting on each leaf! Tip for this: fold your paper in half and then cut half the leaf, then you will have a perfect match when you unfold it. It is the only way I can cut leaves!
Paper: Neenah Paper Classic Linen (classic natural white), Neenah Paper Environment (desert storm), Papertrey Ink (raspberry fizz), Michael's brand (chocolate brown)
Ink: Versamark, Stampin' Up (close to cocoa)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (faux ribbon, polka dot basics)
Etc: Ranger clear embossing powder, Papertrey Ink dark chocolate button, pipe cleaner, Copic (RV17), Spellbinders shapeabilities (nested flower)
Thank you so much for visiting!

Have an amazing day,

    Hey I mentioned on my blog about a daylight bulb. It is a OttLite High Definition Natural Lighting Bulb. Mine is a 60 watt, but there are many different ones. I found mine at JoAnn's when they were on sale, (there kind of pricey). Hope that helps! :)

  8. Super cute card! I love that big flower! Thanks for leaving me a comment on my blog! I have followed yours for a little while now (since Courtney mentioned it) and i don't think I have ever left you a comment and I think all your cards are great! Sorry!:-)I will do better to let you know when I visit!

  9. This card is so cute!! Love the jumbo flower :0)

  11. Oh, I haven't embossed in ages! I'm going to have to pull out the embossing powder again. :)

    Thanks for the super comment on my last post, btw. What a fun surprise! I always read your supply lists too -- you always have such great ideas that I have to make notes. LOL. I'm not sure if the Bigz dies will work in a Cuttlebug -- I think the Sizzlits ones will, but the Bigz might be too big. I'll keep searching for an answer on that one. :)

    NPH! How I love him and everything he does! Plus, I heard he's just the nicest guy ever. Did you see Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog? Beyond awesome.

    Wish you lived close by so we could geek out over Beatles Rock Band, Glee, and NPH together. Hee!
