GARDEN GREETINGS SFYTT & RASPBERRY SUITE COLOR CHALLENGE

I was excited to see that Dawn McVey started hosting a color challenge on her blog, My Favorite Things. She always has the best color combos in her designs, and if Week 1 is a taste of things to come, her color challenges are sure to be very popular among the stamping community! I used Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try with Dawn's Week 1 Raspberry Suite Color Challenge of Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Pink Passion, and Whisper White. I tried to make my design as close to the sketch as possible but struggled with the top panel/star, and ended up tying the ribbon across the width of the card.
