Raspberry Kiss

Those stinkin' raspberries! I was so impatient to play with these guys, and then missed them in the mail before vacation, and in the whirlwind since I've been back, I have spent so little time with them! Isn't there just too much good stuff in the Occasions mini? I feel like I don't have enough time to play with it all before its gone!

I was inspired to use Concord Crush and Old Olive by Cindy E.'s post in the Occasions mini blog hop. Darn it if she didn't plan the seed that I needed this set. And I always have trouble completely distinguishing if it is the image or just the color combo that is so pleasing.

I used Mojo Monday sketch #182.

This was my first eyelet border medallion. Not hard at all!

Stamps: Clearly For You; Paper: Old Olive, Concord Crush, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP, In Color DSP; Ink: Concord Crush, Concord Crush marker, Old Olive marker; Accessories: Sponge, Old Olive taffeta ribbon, Vintage trinket, Eyelet Border punch, Word Window punch, Crimper, Circle Scissors Plus, Sewing machine, Thread.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a great card and a great sketch challenge! I love how your card turned out. I don't have that stamp set, but samples like this make me think that I need it.

That stamp right there was worth the price of the set! Love what you have done with it, and the angled ribbon looks way cool!

I'm pretty sure I can't pick a detail I like best. The stitching, the bow, the eyelet border, the colors...all fantastic!
