Raspberry Suite's Color Challenge 16... double make

Hi everyone! Here's my take on Raspberry Suite's Color Challenge. You know how some feel more natural than others? This one is like a well worn glove for me. I just loved it!


(the lines on the patterned paper here are actually the same orange-gold color as the damask print above, just hard to tell with my lighting, sorry:)


Lately when I get a chance to make cards, I've been trying to make double of everything so I can send a box full of cards to Cards for Heroes for their 25 +2 Challenge. My goal was to make 50 cards to send by the end of summer and I'm trying to wrap this up so I can start making fall and holiday cards for them.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a great holiday weekend!
Products: rooster stamp (Picture Show), sentiment (Renaissance by Design), patterned paper (Andrea Victoria "Gold Damask" by My Mind's Eye), cardstock & kraft (scraps and old packaging), button (Denami Designs), twine (May Arts)
