Raspberry Suite Color Challenge 1

I LOVE challenges! They've helped motivate me when I don't know what to stamp and to stretch my stamping/papercrafting abilities. When Dawn McVey offered her first Raspberry Suite Color Challenge, I wanted to participate but with my tax appointment and the horrible weather here in Crookston, I didn't think it was going to happen. Well, a snow day today made it possible.

You may or may not be aware of the weather/flood/snow issues we're having in northern MN and eastern ND but it's been interesting! The good news is that we're okay. The bad news is that people we know were given a voluntary evacuation notice yesterday as our river is rising! Top that off with 4 plus inches of snow! We got a snow day today out of it but really didn't need more snow. BUT snow is better than rain and will hopefully slow down the rising of the river.

Okay, back to the challenge:



Here's what I came up with using all Stampin' Up! supplies:



Can you even believe that I wasn't sure if I should preorder Petal Pizzazz? Oh my! I LOVE that set! I love the retro boldness, especially when combined with these colors! Love that ribbon? Only a few more days for you to get it free with Saleabration!!!!!

I'm off to the treadmill and to see what happened with the Biggest Loser last night.

Here's the recipe:
Cardstock/Ink colors: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Pink Passion, Whisper White
Stamp set: Petal Pizzazz
Other: So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon (SAB option only!), Scallop Edge Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, SNAIL adhesive
