Razzleberry wishes

I had another win with one of my cards!  The Pretty chocolate for you card won at Stampin’ Celebration this week.  Woohoo!
I was looking for more challenges to do (I have to make the most of my last week of school holidays!) and found this one at Colour Q  which was extremely challenging.
Not colours that I would usually put together.  I’m not sure that I’ve even used Cajun Craze or Peach Parfait yet!  The design team’s cards were gorgeous though, so I needed to give these colours a try.
I also incorporated them into the sketch challenge at Paper Players, so doubly tricky!

This is what I came up with.

This card actually looks much nicer in real life (you’ll have to trust me!)  No matter how many photos I took my camera could not pick up the true colour of the Razzleberry and couldn’t capture the “gorgeousness” of the flower unfortunately.
I found a tutorial on how to make this flower here.  It’s by Kelly Acheson and is just beautiful.  Thanks for the inspiration Kelly.  If you click on the link, she has made hers with Razzleberry ribbon also, yet it looks a completely different colour to my photo(?)

Ingredients :
Stamps : Elements of style, very vintage wheel, oval all
Card : Peach parfait, cajun craze, shimmery white
Ink :  Stazon, razzleberry, river rock, old olive, crumb cake
Other :  razzleberry satin ribbon, aquapainter, pearl, sticky strip, oval punch

  4. It is frustrating when a photo doesn't do a card justice ... but "trust me" ... this does look stunning. The rich colour of the ribbon & flower is such a gorgeous accent. Hugs xxaxx
