Raspberry Tart Cards

Good Morning!
I *think* we are supposed to start warming up again....that -18F was super duper cold yesterday and I still went out...to buy myself a portable heater to keep by my feet while I stamp!
I've been wanting to play along with Mercy's weekly sketch and I finally did! I'm a little late since she posted it last Tuesday but better late than never right? ;) This is sketch #27.
I used Cameo Coral Cardstock but it looks more Regal Rose in the photo but it'll have to do...sorry :)

Jen del Muro always has a fantastic sketch posted each Saturday and it's one of my first blog stops after getting my morning coffee....haha! I LOVE this sketch but I'm not really loving my card so it'll be a re-do sometime today ;) It is a SU! only card.

Thanks for stopping by today! Come back tomorrow...I'm sure I'll have something to show ya :)

I love that first card...you can kinda tell that it's corally compared to the second picture anyway. And as for Jen's sketch - I saw it and didn't think I could take it to a decent place; you did great with it. Love the pokies around the butterfly.

Burrrrrr, -18 is way too cold. I hope things warm up for you.

Cute CUTE cards! I printed Jen's sketch too...just haven't gotten to it yet. I love her sketches!

Brrr...I think we (in Missouri) are in the teens this a.m. as well! Oh well, can't get outside - guess I'll just be forced to stay in and stamp!

LOVE the color scheme on your first card! It's beUtiful!!!

I don't think you could have selected a better DP to go with this delicate image and the colors. It all comes together perfectly!

Holy Crap. -18 degrees!?!? I. would. die. literally. We've had 3 nights in a row that it got down to 53 degrees and we've been FREEZING!!! We've been bundled up in long pants and I dug out a sweatshirt to sleep in last night. Seriously, I couldn't do -18 degrees. I can't even begin to imagine that!!!

Beautiful card by the way!!!

Jackie Pedro said...

Your cards are beautiful, Dawn! I am waiting for my first order from the SU! catalog and this DP is coming to me!!
