Raspberry Suite Color Inspiration Challenge #18

Hey! I'm sharing a card I have made for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge. Not feeling so great today so this won't be a long post! I really enjoyed using these colours and it got me into a Christmas mood!

I decided to come Hero Arts with PTI! Two of my favourite companies! I'm loving the sentiments from the Signature Christmas and had to use one on this card!

I stamed the Hero Arts design block background using Ranger Clear Embossing Ink & added Stardust embossing powder. This adds a lovely sparkly background - yummy!

The sentiment layer section is mounted on foam pads for dimension. I added some Raspberry Fizz Saddle Stitch Ribbon for that added finishing touch along with some HA gems that I coloured using my Copics!

CS: Very Vanilla, Green Galore from SU! Kraft, Raspberry Fizz & Dark Chocolate from PTI
Stamps: Hero Arts Holly Flourish S5067, PTI Signature Christmas & Vintage Labels
Ink: Ranger Clear Embossing Ink, SU! Chocolate Chip, PTI Vintage Cream
Accessories: PTI Raspberry Fizz Saddle Stitch Ribbon, Hero Arts Gems, Copic Marker, Stardust EP, Foam Pads, Fiskars Punch

Thanks for stopping by! I hope I feel a bit better this afternoon so I can make some more cards!
