Warning: There's going to be some rambling in this post!
I loved participating in Dawn's last challenge, which was my first Raspberry Suite Challenge, so I was so excited last night when I hopped on over to Dawn's site and saw that she put out a new challenge!
The funny thing about the colors that Dawn chose for her challenge is this: I had just finished making a card, not for any challenge or anything in particular, and when I finished the card I was going to head up to bed to read for a little while, but I decided real quick to check out Dawn's site. When I saw these colors that she had chosen, I thought I must have ESP, because the card I just finished , was pretty much those same colors. A little strange don't ya think?

Well, I didn't want to enter that card in her challenge, even though the colors were so close, and we all know that I can't leave something undone, and rest, so even though I was done for the night, I had to make another card. Loved the colors. I have so many of these Coleus plants in my pots on my front porch, and I love 'em. Wish that I would have thought to use them for color inspiration....Thanks for thinkin' of it, Dawn!!
I tried to go simple with this card. I used one of the new Level 1 Hostess sets from the new SU catty. I just love this little bird. Grabbed a few leftover buttons from the last card I made, and I had my card. Thanks for stoppin' by and takin' a peek!
