Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #7

Howdy friends! Happy Tuesday! I've been busy in my craft room cooking up a handful of thank yous + one congrats card to check a few to dos off my list of cards I need. Dawn McVey's color challenge was the perfect prompt for creating my pile o cards. I mixed and matched inks, ribbons and papers but these are two of my fave combos:
card #1
card #2
And here are all the different combos I cooked up as a result of this challenge and the supplies I had on hand. Finished card size 4 1/4 x 3 3/4".
What a surprisingly fun color combo to play with! I really liked the ripe avocado next to the raspberry fizz. I will definitely try those two again...after I replenish my ripe avocado stock that is ;) Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Stamps: Stampin Up! and Papertrey Ink (Faux Ribbon)
Ink: Stampin Up!
Embossing powder: SU!
Die: Tope Note by Sizzix
Scallop Scissors: Fiskars
Other: ribbon (raspberry fizz by Papertrey Ink), buttons and craft gems
