Rasberry Suite Color Challenge

Last night I broke out my stuff to participate in Dawn's color challenge. I'm always curious about the process of how people get started on their cards, so I thought I'd share mine for this card. Usually with a color challenge I pull out the cardstock first, and then some accessories that go along as well:


For this challenge I actually had a little inspiration as well. Now this is rare for me, but I just thought the folds on this shirt would be really neat with paper.
So here's what I came up with. For the white paper I had to use the thinnest white paper to make so many folds, and truly they are really are far from perfect folds. I thought that would just add some more interest. I'm still not sure how I feel about it, but I think it's pretty interesting.

Stamps: Inkadinkado letters, Polka Dot Basics
Ink: Hibiscus Burst, Craft White, Black SU writer
Paper: White, Rasberry Fizz, Basic Gray
Ribbon: Hibiscus Burst Ribbon
Circle NestabilitiesIf it stops raining today Chase and I are going to be working in the yard! Oh, and I had to post from Chase's computer today. Mine won't even turn on... I'm thinking that's a bad sign.
