Raspberry Challenge #10

I love Dawn's blog, she has the coolest ideas and has such a beautiful heart!! She's not going through such a great time either at the moment and I'm sure would also appreciate your prayers!!
In saying that she has come up with another wonderful colour challenge! Man I'm telling you I stared at this pic for ages trying to get inspiration!! All I could think of was using last years in-colour Groovy Guava but with what??? Finally last night it came to me and I decided that it was time to pull out my sowing machine (a machine i bought especially just for cards!!) and add some stitching to whatever it was I was going to make!!
I love the Always set so decided on that with touches of this and that, yes I still wasn't sure of what the this and that was going to be but eventually it came together and this was the end result!
I do really like Cameo coral and when you tap it on the Chocolate chip ink and then fold it in a pleat it looks like a funky ribbon!! My stitching isn't fabulous, Amanda (my super up-line) always, I mean ALWAYS sows on her projects and it looks sooooo awesome, all zig zag here and there. I tried that but I think it looks like I've tried and not just sowed???
So with all of that waffling in the end I am very happy and hope maybe soon I'll make the top picks!!
Hope to post again, sooner rather than later!!
