Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #8

I wasn't sure I was going to play along with this challenge this time. But I decided I would. I actually tried making a card last night, but was not liking the results of anything I came up with. Finally decided to go to bed and give it a rest. I just haven't felt the creative juices flowing lately and I don't know what the deal is. I soo badly want to create and make things, but the creativity just isn't there right now. Anyway, I know this is super last minute. But today I made this card, and still was having trouble coming up with an idea, so I pretty much copied a card I made a while back. It's not the exact same but pretty close! Also, I'm not certain I have the pink shade right. Dawn said that it is a bright pink, different looking from what the picture showed somewhat, to me it looks like a deep rose color in the picture that she put up. Anyway, I just used what I had, I am running low on most of my favorite colors of card stock. :(
Blogger has been stupid tonight and uploading super slow. So I am hurrying to get this up! So enjoy!
I posted this in such a hurry last night that I didn't say all I wanted to about this card. I also wanted to mention that not only did I copy a card I had made a while back, but the original card (second one down) was inspired by a card that Dawn actually made. So I didn't want anyone thinking it was totally my original design. I normally never copy any one's ideas when I do a color challenge. But as I mentioned above, I just haven't felt the creative juices these days. So I just copied something I really like (but like I said it's not exactly the same and I added my own things to it, like sewing the button on and adding the scalloped edge). I didn't purposely do it just because it was originally inspired by Dawn and because it was for her challenge either. And I almost didn't do this one for it just because of that, because I didn't want anyone thinking I was trying to increase my chances of getting in the spotlight. I totally never think like that! Every time I've been in the spotlight it has been truly an honor and blessing! And I don't expect to be picked this time, I just play along to have fun as I always do! So just wanted to mention that! Oh, and in this first picture I know the card looks like it's crooked or at a slant, it was because I had it sitting on a spot on the chair (my prop for my cards) where it slopes in a way so I think it made it look crooked, the actual card isn't really crooked! Ha!

On another note, my baby boy turned 8 months old yesterday!! I can't believe how fast time has gone and how he's such a big boy and wants to keep up with his big brother! I love him SO much! You can see our little photo shoot we had outside below
