Raspberry Suite Color Challenge 2

Woot!  Woot!  Dawn McVey is doing another color challenge! 
I love the colors but was totally inspired by the leaf pattern on the pillow in the picture, so my goal was to represent that in ink and paper.

I paper pieced the leaves using some SU! patterned paper, and some regular cardstock I stamped randomly on.  I stamped the leaves on Linen Vellum from PTI to continue the fabric-y look.  I made the stitched "quilt" part using Background Basics:Retro from PTI.  I used craft ink and clear embossing powder (mostly because I wanted to heat set it so I didn't have to wait to finish the card :o) ) 
The medallion uses PTI's Guidelines Two and Around and About Sentiments.  I wondered if the words would fit around the outside of the circles and they did!  Since I didn't cut in around the leaves, I made a larger border (1/4" all the way around) to allow the brown to be showed off more.
Thanks for stopping by!

    realized it's new to me. Regardless, I'm definitely happy I came
    across it and I'll be bookmarking it and checking back regularly!
