raspberry suite challenge 16

For this challenge, I focused on working in pattern and texture along with the colors from Dawn’s latest challenge. I love this gorgeous Autumn combination — no doubt that I’ll be pulling it into some more of my projects this fall. {grins} I had a hard time choosing between More Mustard and Crushed Curry, but I think I made the right choice in the end. Loving the bright gold with the Chocolate Chip!

Speaking of love . . . I’m thrilled with how the paper-piecing on this dressmaker’s dummy image turned out. (I’m sure those dummies have a better name than that. Any seamstresses want to help me out here? I digress.) The pattern on that particular piece of paper is so subtle and elegant. Oh, there’s definitely some love for the Bella collection on this card!

recipe: stamps: chic boutique; card stock: crushed curry and very vanilla; patterned paper: bella bleu and bella rose; ink: chocolate chip and more mustard; ribbon: chocolate chip striped grosgrain; buttons: latte; stampin' dimensionals; punches: scallop edge and small corner rounder; tea dye; twine

    This is so pretty Kim!Of course I love the ribbon *wink*… and your papers are so wonderful! I think the dummy image is called a “dress form”… but I could be wrong.
