This week's TCPTUES challenge is hosted by Susan, and it is a color challenge to use Raspberry Pink, Pumpkin Orange, and Sunny Yellow. Yowza!

I don't have any card stock named 'Raspberry', but I remembered that a set of patterned papers I purchased recently had bright pinks, oranges, and yellows, along with other cheerful colors. So, I pulled out a sheet of this bright pink-on-pink floral paper, which is close enough to raspberry for me! I pulled out my Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie paper from Stampin' Up. My eyes hurt looking at it all. So, I pulled out the subdued Barely Banana cardstock, and decided to use it for the card base. It gave my eyes a place to rest!

The layout of the card is from this week's sketch challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.

Stuff used:
Stamps: The Cat's Pajamas Snail on Flower (Hearts and Flowers set), Life is Good (Spring Fling set)
Paper: Stampin Up Barely Banana, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie; Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, patterned paper from DCWV The Spring Matstack
Ink: Versafine Onxy Black, Prismacolor Pencils, SU Pink Passion marker

Yowza is right! The yellow does tone it down nicely though. The snail is too cute! :-)
