Chocolate, Cream and Raspberry For Christmas In July

Wow, time sure is flying by, this week! We're already on day 3 of our Christmas in July celebration over at Catch The Bug. For today's challenge, we have some fun colors for you to use.  We want to see your projects using the colors Chocolate, Cream and Raspberry, If you're like me, it seemed a little difficult at first, but believe me, it's not as hard as you think once you get started! So put your thinking caps on and get busy creating.  Join us for this challenge, along with our blog hop and the rest of our other daily challenges this week, over at Catch The Bug.  Hurry, you don't want to miss out on the awesome prizes this week, from
Bugaboo Stamps!

I mine is more of a deep red, rather than a raspberry, but its the closest I could find, in papers!

My card, today, uses the image Plush Reindeer - Ornament, from       Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers.  I used a sentiment from Sentiments 4 You, printed on cream cardstock and punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.  All of the papers, with the exception of the burlap look paper, are from Stampin Up.  I used Raspberry colored pearls to embellish. A clear glaze pen has been applied to the ornament on the image, to give the appearance of glass.
