Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #11

Okay, so that's why they call it a "Challenge"! I stared at those colors layed out on my desk for a week...and then, it happened ~ all of a sudden this design came to me today. I must have completed fifty other projects (plus housework, laundry, grocery shopping, answered e-mails) before this card came together - LOL

Dawn, by the number of entries you have, you were definitely right "We Can Do It".

My card details: Hibiscus Flower Stamp is from See D's clear stamp set "Always Tat"
stamped with StazOn-jet black ink on green and red DCWV cardstock and cut out to paper piece onto the bright pink mat, from DCWV Mat Stack which is on top of the gray card stock.
"thank you" is printed in black from my computer and everything is glued onto a white (sorry, I couldn't NOT use white!) Martha Stewart punched note card. Used my Marvy giga-size oval scalloped punch on the pink and gray and Cuttlebug's "Floral Fantasy" is embossed on the bright pink.

Hope you are enjoying your 4th of July, everyone!
We are so thankful for all our
