This card is for two challenges. The first one is for SCS Inspiration Challenge (IC179). Thanks so much Stef for the wonderful pillow choices. I chose this pillow as my inspiration.


This card is also for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge - Week 5

I am using PTI raspberry fizz, hibiscus burst, smokey shadow, and vintage cream. I am really loving this smokey shadow. I think it is a great neutral. It is truly a smokey hue, too. Love that. I am using a couple of PTI sets for this card. I am using Spiral Bouquet and Out on a Limb(pre revision edition).


For my card to look more like the inspiration picture pillow, I chose to use the larger scripty words in the Spiral Bouqet set. I stamped random themed words and a mini sentiment for the background. I sponged the edges to give it a little age look to look more like the inspiration picture. I chose the little dotted flower blooms in the Out on the Limb set to mimic the pink dots in the inspiration picture. I love how it came out. I used the wonderful quote by Josephine Billings.
I finished my card with a few little hibiscus burst buttons that Silke Ledlow sent me in the mail. Isn't she so sweet!!! Love them, girl!!! Thanks a bunch!!!
