Just Because

This is my first time participating in Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. Dawn is known for the color combinations that she puts together in her cards. So, while a lot of people are doing sketch challenges, it seems fitting that she is doing color challenges!

Her inspiration and colors for this challenge are:

I love brown and aqua together! In fact, my bedroom, bathroom and, most importantly {!} my scrapbook room are all based off of this color combo. So, it seemed like a perfect week to jump in!
Here is my card:

I used Papertrey Ink's Life stamp set. {I am lovin' this set!} I stamped my flowers, then cut the rectangle into three sections and mounted them on dark chocolate paper. I used the blade on my scissors to distress the edge of the dark chocolate paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

(all Papertrey Ink, unless noted otherwise)
Stamps: Life, Mega Mixed Messages
Cardstock: White, Aqua Mist, Dark Chocolate
Ink: Aqua Mist, Dark Chocolate
Other: twill ribbon, button, Cuttlebug tag die, hemp cord
