Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #12


I have that exact variety of Coleus from the inspiration photo in my front porch flower pots. Such beautiful colors. My card today is made with all the color challenge Papertrey Ink cardstock: Vintage Cream, Spring Moss, Raspberry Fizz and Scarlet Jewel. Vintage Picnic basket was stamped with Vintage Cream ink on to Scarlet Jewel cardstock and cut out. Envelopes were paper pieced. I added two Spring Moss rhinestones to the basket handles. Look at the itty bitty holeless button I found in my Spring Moss button jar - so cute!
