Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15

Another fabulous Raspberry Suite Color Challenge by Dawn McVey! Here is what I came up with...
The card base is made from cream cardstock, even though it looks white. The butterflies were punched from melon and pink cardstock then crinkled, for a bit of a distressed look, to match the torn edge of the pink cardstock below. Then embellished with spring moss buttons. The vine border was inked in spring moss and the apron lace border was punched from melon cardstock. Finished the card of with a touch of cream twine and a sentiment.

That girl always amazes me with her creative color combos!
Aren't you amazed...No stitching or knots! :D Except for the buttons of course, but that doesn't count. Anyways, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Thanks for visiting me today, hope you enjoyed the card! Bye, bye!
