Triple Play

I was checking out Dawn McVey's blog last night and found her new Raspberry Suite Color Challenge! Here are the inspiration colors:

In addition, Inspirational Card Challenges has a new sketch this week. Here it is:

Well I was totally inspired last night after not having much motivation for the past few days. I was able to make 3 cards with this very beautiful color scheme!

The first card in the line-up is also my card for the ICS#27 challenge:

I embossed the background with the Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder. I used a Fiskars border punch for the edge treatments.

This birthday stamp is a fairly recent purchase, and it is definitely one of my favorites!

For the second card, I decided to feature a butterfly.

There's that Happy Birthday stamp again! And I just love this butterfly cut from the Teen Chillin card on the Slice machine!

Again, I embossed the background with the Cuttlebug Spots and Dots Folder. After I assembled the card, it seemed a little plain, so I added some red gems randomly in the dots.

Finally, for the last card, I used the Cuttlebug Bloom Dots folder to emboss the bottom of the card.

I used the Nestabilities Blossom dies to create the layered flower. I curled the edges up slightly and added some stickles for sparkle. I am loving this flower!

Great Challenges! Thanks for Looking!
