A Raspberry Suites Colour Challenge


Happy Friday! I’m back again with a card that I’ve made for the current Raspberry Suites Colour Challenge! I love the way these challenges really make me think and dare me to step out of my safe and favourite colour combos! The added bonus is that ANYONE can play along so long as you have these colours in your crafting stash – it doesn’t have to be PTI products (though I’d highly recommend them ;D!)

Anyways, here are this week’s colours:They really call out autumn to me, even though that yellow is PTI’s Summer Sunrise! I don’t own any autumn themed stamps (note to self: I NEED some autumnal stamps!) so had to think again with what to play with!

I combined this colour challenge with the current Get Sketchy sketch and came up with this:I have to confess I’m not feeling the love with this card, although I’m glad I tried! Just wishing that flourish was more subtle and the sentiment bolder. I am my own worst critic aren’t I?!

I’ve also made another card for the current RSCC that I’m pleased as punch with (especially as it’s yet another masculine card!) I hope to upload this weekend when I can grab a spare moment and a decent pic of it – this weather isn’t complimenting my poor photography skills! Maybe autumn is closer than I think…

Hope you have a fab weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll catch ya later!

  1. Well Autumn has certainly arrived here on the Wirral too!! I tried to take a piccy of my latest card (which I have been doing in the garden lately for the good light) and the thing nearly blew away!! The colours are gorgeous on this card Aimes – that's the only good thing about Autumn really – the colours! Fab layout too.Hugs,Caryn xxx
