Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21

I am finally getting to play again in Dawn's color challenges! Yay! This one started out as a bit of a toughie. However, I went through my scraps and found everything I needed right there! Even the card base, which is a 4x4, was in my scrap pile.

Originally, I was just going to put the vine at the bottom, however it didn't stamp all the way and when I tried to fix it, it smudged, so I put the buttons on top to cover it up. I was actually surprised at how quickly I was able to put this one together!





Supplies (all PTI):
Paper - Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, Dark Chocolate, Rustic Cream
Stamps - Beyond Basics Borders, Birthday Basics
Ink - Aqua Mist, Dark Chocolate
Other - Rustic Jute Twine, Aqua Mist and Dark Chocolate Vintage Buttons

I love your clean and simple style here.

And if you hadn't told me about using the button to cover your mistake, I would have thought it was a brilliant artistic touch...which it is, it's just that it happens to serve two purposes on this occasion! Well done!
