I have been doing Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge for the past few weeks, and each week I've struggled with it. Although I have come up with something each time, I've never loved any of them yet. But at last I have been able to make something I really liked:) I did struggle with it at first, but I like the end results :)

Here are the colors for this week:

And here is my card:
I never really use a color like raspberry fizz, or scarlet, really. I don't have PTI's Button Bits set (yet!), so I used a Fancy Pants stamp I had and then put buttons on it like flowers. I think it worked pretty well. The cs is all just random pieces I had in my stash. I used the Martha Stewart doilie punch again. You can't really tell in the photo, but I stamped tiny polka dots all over the background with the scarlet color too. I think it helped the base not look too flat.

Thanks for stopping by!!
