SSCB#34 - Missing You!

 Hi and thanks for stopping by!  It's the first Wednesday of the month - that means a new challenge begins at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog.  The challenge this time is to make a "Missing You" card.  You must use at least one Serendipity Stamps image or die on your project.   You could win $20 off your next order just for linking up your project.  Everybody is a winner though because the sale this time is free shipping on all continental US orders $10 and up through August 13.  You can jump to the store HERE.

Mary gave the design team an extra challenge this time - to make a CAS (clean and simple) card.  At the half way point later in the month - the third Wednesday - we will all be featuring a fussy card using the same stamp we used today.
 I used the "blackberries" stamp - and colored them up as raspberries.  I have both growing in my yard - but the raspberries are my favorite!     I'm not so CAS a gal so I added a few extra details to this one - I debossed a pretty die cut frame over the image, and added a bit of colorful twine to break up all that white!

Want a little more inspiration?  Just click on the names below to jump to the design team blogs.  We have a special guest this month too!  It's Kecia Waters from Stamping Deets  I hope you will stop by and say hi!

Yummy raspberries and I love the debossed frame for them.

Jeanne, this is beautiful. I love the debossed frame around the image, and your coloring is fab! Lucky you, with fresh berries in your own yard! Yum!

Thought it was a painting on a plate when I saw the thumbnail, so vintage elegant! Lovely CAS!

As always you totally rocked this challenge! I love your sweet berries and your embossed frame is stunning. Can't wait to play along!

The debossing looks so pretty--just a touch of texture on your all white background. Love that you chose to do raspberries--yum. Their color is gorgeous.
