Raspberry Suite Color Challenge - Week 5

This is the card I made for Dawn's challenge this week. I really am so excited that she is doing this. She is a real inspiration and I love her color choices. OK...I have to say that I love love love this card. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I really like how it turned out. I finally got to use my Guide Lines 2 stamp set. I had been wanting to order it for awhile and it was always sold out, so as soon as it came back in stock I ordered it! I got it in the mail yesterday and I didn't waste any time using it. =)
I love being able to make my own patterned paper with whatever color scheme I want to.
Today I went out and bought a pool for the girl's. Just one of those round plastic ones but I am so excited to put them both in it and see them play together!! They are too cute! The weather is really warming up and I have a feeling we will get a lot of use out of the pool this summer.
Alrighty hope you are all having a fabulous day!
