Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #16

Tuesdays is one of the only nights during the week where I come straight home, and for that reason I love Tuesdays. Now don't get me wrong I love my small group on Thursdays and church on Wednesday Night, my book club, and working out (um... not really), but it is nice to have one night to get some things done. Tonight actually turned out to be one of those nights!

- I dropped off film (well no, not film... uploaded my photos) at Wolfe. Speaking of, did you know the new locations don't develop film anymore? They can send it off, but they no longer do it on site!
- Stopped by Men's Warehouse to see my little brother
- Payed bills
- Washed clothes (but I still haven't put them up, but they are folded... let's be real here)
- Made my Raspberry Suite Color Challenge Card

Not bad for 7:43. But let's be honest, obviously this card came together pretty quickly, and that rarely happens for me.

Here are the fabulous colors Dawn picked out. To be honest I was kind of surprised! These don't seem like her 'norm,' but I love them! Check out the other super talented participants.
And here is my card:I surprisingly did a LOT of stamping. Here's what I used:

Stamps: Sentiments, Thanks (American Crafts)
Paper: Vintage Cream (PTI), Kraft (SU)
Ink: Vintage Cream (PTI), Yellow Ochre and Chestnut Roan (ColorBox Fluid Chalk)
Ribbon: Chocolate Satin (Offray)It's not perfect, but I like it!

Also, I was not too happy with my Moxie Fab picture I took this weekend. I've updated it with a new one here. I should show you a before and after. Photography makes such a HUGE difference.

THis turned out great. Kind of a hard color combo this week but it looks pretty on your card! Very wheat-y and breezy!
