Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #11

sooo, this is my first time participating in Dawn McVey's Color Challenge, but i'm super excited about playing along some more!

this color combo reeaaaaaaaallllllllyyy stretched me... i love red, pink, and green (oooh, and black too!) but i just was struggling with what i wanted to be my "accent" color. i was tossed between having pink as the main color, couldn't make it work, and settled on green. wasn't too happy, but then, once i picked out the paper (perfect stuff from Amy Butler!) and the stamped image i wanted, the rest came together!

i actually made two cards, and tried to decide which to post, but when i asked my brothers for opinions, they picked different ones... so i'm posting both! you decide which one you like better (there's not *that* big a difference, but still).

see, my brother Joey liked the one above, and Pete liked the one below.

but how can you really not like the sentiment? it's so cute :D i'm giving myself a pat on the back as we speak *smiles*


thanks for looking, and have a great Monday! i may be back to post more :D

Those cards are too sweet. The panda bear stamp is huggable, and I LOVE that paper, too. It looks fuzzy to the touch, so it fits with the panda...

Very cute! I LOVE the big ribbon and the pom poms! Glad you could join us for the challenge! :)

Oh that panda is too cute! I think both cards work, but since you asked, I really love the big polka dot ribbon......the way its tied up makes me think of a great big bear hug...which seems kinda appropriate! :>:>
