Dawn McCevey Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #14

This card uses SU Stampin Up paper and Dawn's own Mod Squad and my nestabilities. I punched out the front of the card and stamped my image inside. The size of the card is 4.24 square. The base is cream SU paper.

More great stamps by Dawn & PI. I used the Polka Dot Basics II and Mod Squad sets. My background was created with the polka dot set and SU Rose Red and Mambo Melon ink. I used the SU paper for my frame and some cream paper to stamp on and cream ribbon both by SU. The base card us SU Rose Red paper.

I have only had one other chance to enter this challenge despite the fact that I am a huge fan and was aware of the other 13 challenges. Time.... there is never enough is there?

I hope you like!
