raspberry suite color challenge

Well, this was so fun to make. I truly started with the birdcage, loved it and went from there. I used Dawn's Raspberry Suite Colors. Aren't they so pretty? Here's what I came up with. I used this set from My Cute Stamps.
Here's everything I used:

Stamps: My Cute Stamps, Ashley's Blossom
Ink: White Craft, Chocolate Chip
Ribbon: Aqua Twill
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Aqua Mist, Berry Sorbet White

In other news, Chase tried to teach me how to play guitar last night. It didn't go so well. He said his middle school students are faster learners than I am. He also said if I want to get serious about this, I need to cut my nails and stop blogging so much. I told him I quit. Ha! So I was officially a guitar student for one night. Ahh... I'm a quitter.

Love the card- especially the bird in the cage! BTW- middle schoolers are the perfect age for learning an instrument. They don't have all the stuff packed into their brains like we do! LOL! Good luck with the guitar lessons!

This is awesome, definitely one of my favs! Great job on the challenge.

I am having more and more trouble resisting buying some "My Cute Stamps." And your adorable card is pushing me further...

Hugs!

Have a great time in Chicago!!! Safe travels to you and your hubby.

My trip was great last weekend although we didn't venture into the city.

I look forward to hearing about your trip and hopefully seeing some photos :)

So cute! Love the bird cage! I would love to play guitar too. My brother tried to teach me growing up, but he taught to fast and my husband tried to teach me too, but I think I have accepted I'm not a guitar player!! :)

I absolutely love this card. The bird cage is awesome, and I love the way you used the colors.

I have never been able to get the hang of guitar, and I have a music degree! It is hard to learn!
