New to the Blogging World! -- Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #18

So I'm new to the blogging world--call me a Blog Virgin, if you will--so please bear with me . . . 
I absolutely love Dawn McVey's cards, so why not have my first post be a response to one of her card challenges--Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #18:

. . . and here's the card I created:

Now, the colour in the photo is making the raspberry look more orange (sorry).

Supplies-- this is where I'm the novice--I don't always keep packaging/labels, so I've forgotten where half of them have come from.
Cardstock: I bought the green cardstock at a garage sale, so I have no clue as to name of colour or company; Raspberry patterned cardstock ???
Stamps: Border stamp repeated on cream cardstock--Stampology Border Stamps; "thanks a bunch" stamp--See-D's Phrases Collection
Ink: ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink--Dark Brown; Distress Ink Walknut Stain
Embellishments: Ribbon--Offray Antique White; Pink jewels--local Dollar store

Yay--I did it--losing my Blog Virginity was not so bad ;)


  1. This card is super cute!
    Question...any chance your hubby's name is Marc? I went to teachers college with a Marc Frayne who got married shortly after, and I believe has two sons! If so, SMALL WORLD!!!!

  2. Tammy,
    Gorgeous card - welcome to the world of blogging...I just started in July - very addictive and relaxing at the same time! Does that make sense!

  3. Lisa--it is indeed a small world! You did go to Teacher's College with my husband Mark. He's teaching Phys. Ed now at a local high school. Are you teaching? I like your blog!

  4. Gorgeous patterns used in this and love the rhinestones next to the sentiment!

  8. Your card is awesome... so glad you posted your 'first' time with such an elegant one! Don't worry too much about the 'ingredients' to your cards - just enjoy making them ;)
