I love Razzleberry!

My card today is for two challenges - the OWH Stars and Stamps midweek throwdown to make a card with fun folds, as well as the Perfect Sentiments PSC67 to use flowers with a sentiment on the front.
I pulled out some much loved retired SU! cottage wall dsp, along with some old olive, Razzleberry, and vanilla card stocks to make a gate fold card. The Hero Art flowers were stamped on vanilla with Razzleberry, hand cut, and popped up on a Cheery Lynn mini flourish die. The flower centers were made with a SU! owl punch, and shaped with a pencil eraser on a mouse pad. The sentiment is by SNSS and the punched border was done with a SU! fancy scallop punch. The opposite side of the card has matching dsp too, but the glare pretty much cancelled that out.

Thanks for stopping by today, and make it a wonderful Wednesday!

LOVE IT! Those flower centers look fabulous. That paper is very pretty and goes so well with the Rich Razzleberry, wich is one of my favorite SU colors. Very nice job with this challenge.

Beautiful use of Razzleberry!!! The flower centers are wonderful - I read every word trying to see what button or brad purchase that I needed to make and it turns out you accomplished those centers just by shaping paper!

Yup, I like it also! It always reminds me of the color you get when grape jelly mixes with the butter on your toast. Kind of creamy. Can ya tell I am hungry? This is really, really pretty!
