Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21

Yeah!! So happy today when I saw that Dawn had a new color challenge over on her blog.  I loved the colour combo--so yummy!  I have admired Dawn's work for a while now, and I have tried to emulate her style in my cards, but have never felt I've matched up.  I am, however, quite pleased with what I came up with today!  It came to me pretty quickly too--which is always nice.  Here's the colour combo:

Here's my card:

I stamped the damask type print (Kimberly Poloson by Fiskars) three times with embossing ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder--so in real life there is a nice shimmer to the card.  Card is DCWV; Yellow strip is an old scrap; Chocolate with cream polka dots is from Michaels Holiday collection; sentiment is Heidi Grace in Colorbox Dark Brown Chalk Ink; button from my stash.

My cousin is getting married in March and has a damask theme.  I think I might make another one of these with her colour scheme and swap out the senitment with "Congratulations".  I like the contrast of the swirly damask lines with the thin straight lines of the sentiment.

Gotta run--thanks 4 your time!
