Raspberry Suite Challenge #12 - My Second One!

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? If you want to see this card, click here!

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!

Remember when I get to 30 who join my site, I'm going to give away another stamp set to one of those lucky people! We're almost there!

Inks: Riding Hood Red, Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla
Stamps: Of the Earth (Hostess Level 1 set from the new SU catalog)
Extras: Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, 1 1/4 & 1 3/8 Square Punches, Random Buttons

That is a cute little bird stamp! Quite a coincidence regarding your card colors and Dawn's challenge!
