Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #18

Today is a two for one post. Over at Dawn McVey's blog she is having another color challenge. Such a pretty palette.

I love the bright bold and clean lines of that first card. There is actually a story behind that one. ;o) It was my original plan for the challenge, but after working and re-working and giving up in frustration because I just couldn't get it to look right, I ended up with the card below. But like all things, sometimes if you just walk away for a bit...the answer will come to you.

Now, if you take those same colors and give it just a tad deeper in overall shade, they make a gorgeous rustic Christmas palette.

I just love that snowflake from SU!'s Berry Merry set. And all of the inked edges on this card just make it feel so cozy. And that felt ribbon...I just can't get enough of it!

Thanks for looking and I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! BTW, I will work on putting together that tutorial this week on the ribbon flowers. Thanks so much for all of the kind comments!
