Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #17

I first wanted to thank you all for all the great feedback about our Everything but the Kitchen Sink Challenge. I really can't tell you how excited I am to see what you all come up with! Also, I've added a direct link to the challenge over on the right!

I also have a quick Maddie update! She started coughing really hard earlier this week, and I've already made my first visit back to the vet! She's still coughing some, but it is getting better! Chase has already said, "Wow this is like having a kid."

So between all of our normal busy routines and our sick dog, I was able to make a really simple card for Dawn's latest challenge. I'm still not 100% sure how I feel about this card, but I do like the colors:


And here's my card:


Stamps: Glee and Sentiments (American Crafts); Polka Dot Basics (Papertrey Ink)
Cardstock: Kraft (SU); Aqua, Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink)
Buttons: Pure Poppy
Ink: Lipstick Red, Chestnut Roan(Color Box)

Oh, no! Not the VET BILLS! Oh, Courtney, I'm so sorry! Hope the little cutie is okay! My lil' guy, Oatmeal, had a hair stuck in his throat and it made him do a hic-uppy thing for a few days but then "it passed!" (tee hee) Hope Maddie feels better on her own, too!

Hey! How 'bout that awesome card, girl! Loverly! Such cute images and use of Dawn's {fabulous} colors! Love your stamping and beautiful ribbon! You're fantastic!

* I'm looking forward to entering your AWESOME challenge soon: your project is now in pole position! :o)
