Featured Stamper and a Raspberry color challenge

Hi everyone! Today is the SCS Featured Stamper challenge and I was thrilled to see one of my stampin' favs, Mercy Kerin (mkstampin74) chosen! I also combined this challenge with Dawn's Raspberry Suite color challenge to use Raspberry Fizz, Celery and Avocado (which I don't have, so I used Wasabi).

I chose Mercy's card For You to case. I really loved the layout, the gorgeous butterflies and fun use of ribbon. I really wanted to keep the ribbon treatment, but the more I futzed with it, the more I couldn't make it work! I ended up changing the pattern paper panels, used punched butterflies, added pearls and used my new SU! Top Note die.

My biggest challenge was that I don't have raspberry fizz ink!! Ack! Man I really wanted stamp some of Verve's butterflies, but alas... So I used my cardstock, ribbon and pearl accents instead. I think it's enough pink. OH, and see that pattern paper? It's Basic Grey's Urban Prairie, and a perfect mix of celery and wasabi! Love it!

The sentiment is from Verve's newly released Dare to Be You. I thought it was fitting for Mercy's card.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
