Raspberry Suite Color Inspiration Challenge #15

Happy Tuesday All! Well, I just knew this week was gonna go slow as I am on my countdown to Orlando!! Today has gone extra slow!! I had a plan this morning and it didn't go well!! LOL! When do plans ever go exactly as planned..?

Anyway, I was going to bake a Yoghurt cake for my friends at work tomorrow and I have finally got round to it this afternoon. When I went to weigh out my ingredients the digital scales had run out of battery so I went to the shop & bought new ones but still it decided not to work :( so I thought Oh well I've had my use out of them I will go out and buy some new ones. So I went to my local department store & bought some. Got them out of the box turned them on & all i got on the display was 'Err' darn I was beginning to give up! After half an hour of ironing I got bored & thought right I will go to Argos buy new scales & then go swimming so that is what I have done this afternoon! The cake is now baking & smells good :)

Yesterday I had some free time & so I made this card for Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15. You can check the details HERE and the colors! Yesterday I received my SU! order from the US which made me happy :) along with the new in colors of card stock and a couple of the ink pads I had ordered the Big Shot Butterfly Die Oh how I have wanted this for soooooo long!!

I kept my card really simple & message free to use for any occasion that may arise! I had to use one of the butterflies too!

Ink: SU! Mellow Moss, PTI Melon Berry
Stamps: PTI Polka Dot Basics 2, Beautiful Blooms

I'm so looking forward to SUNSHINE as it seems that Summer in the UK is over for this year :(
