SSCB#34 - Raspberries

 Hi and thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are having a beautiful day!  We're at the half way point of the challenge at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog.   The challenge begins on the first Wednesday of every month, and then at the half way point (the third Wednesday of the month) the DT provides a little more inspiration and hopefully encourages you to play along.  There's still lots of time to play so I hope you will join us.   This theme this time is "Missing You".  You must include at least one Serendipity Stamps image or die on your finished project.   You can win a $20 discount code off your next order just for playing along.  Mary has a sale going this week too - it's 40% off the highest priced item in your cart when you use code "40fromhigh814" - good through 8/27.


As you know, Mary likes to keep the DT on their toes and she usually adds a "challenge within the challenge" for the DT.  Last time we all made Miss You cards in a CAS style  - here's mine. 
This time we were asked to keep with the Miss You theme and make a fussy version using the same stamped image as the time before.   Here's my fussy version featuring the "Blackberries" turned raspberries!  

Of course I added lots of layers, and pretty trims. Did you notice that pretty Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily? Serendipity now stocks Cheery Lynn dies - and yes you can use that 40% off coupon too!


I'm looking forward to seeing what you make and I do hope you join us at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog!  Hugs!!

I have to admit I love the one with all the layers...it just makes it a Jeanne card. The doily ,that bow,and pin...all of it make for a gorgeous card.
I would like a redo in mine.

Of course layered and trimmed to perfection, and loving the limes with raspberry and a touch of aqua with this one! Lovely Jeanne!

Both are beautiful, Jeanne! the CAS version is so pretty w/ all the white space & embossed frame. The fussy is gorgeous w/ the doily and pretty papers.

Yummy colors, I love raspberries and French Pastries! This is another winner, Jeanne!

Both cards are wonderful but I love the fussy version a little more. Those pretty papers and doily look fantastic. I would think the berries against an all white background would stand out more but against the soft greens and pure white doily, they really pop!

I love both versions, but the fussy layered is my Favorite. I love the layering and embellishments! Beautiful coloring! I got this challenge so backwards in my notes, lol!

Boths cards are so nicely done. Since I'm a person who loves to use layers...I'm really drawn to that pretty card with all the layers...Just lovely!
