Rustic Raspberry Suite Challenge 17

I'm back with another post for the Raspberry Suite Challenge 17. I get so inspired by Dawn's color challenges, that I had to get my idea down on a card before it slipped from my memory! Here are the colors for the challenge: The color palette I used was Real Red, Cool Carribean {retired}, Soft Suede, Kraft and Very Vanilla. And here's my card: I love these colors and went with a rustic look and clean and simple lines. My card design was actually inspired by these totes I saw at the Twomey Winery in Sonoma this weekend: The bag was made out of a burlap looking fabric with brightly printed panel swatches. I loved the look, so when I saw the Kraft color in Dawn's challenge, I knew what I wanted to make. Here's the recipe:
{Rustic Raspberry Suite 17}
All Supplies Stampin'Up! except wood button
*Stamps: For All You Do, Thank You Kindly
*Cardstock: Kraft, Very Vanilla, Cool Carribean {retired}, Real Red DSP, The Write Stuff Specialty DSP
*Ink: Cool Carribean {retired}, Real Red, Chocolate Chip
*Accessories: Pretties half pearls, Linen Thread, wood button
So, what do you think? I hope you like it! Thanks for looking!
