Curtain Call....On Your Birthday

Good Morning Peeps!!

Today's card is made for Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 18.

I was a bit nervous when I started this card, but I do like the final results. The colors this week are night of navy, ballet blue, kraft, old olive and whisper white.
I started the card with my base of kraft and then followed that with some night of navy, whisper white and then the DS paper is from the Tall Tales pack. The stamp set I used is "Thoughts & Prayers" and the sentiment comes from the "On Your Birthday" set.

I stamped the tree with old olive and chocolate chip ink. I added some ballet blue and night of navy buttons tied on with some thread. I also used a spiral clip and some ballet blue and night of navy 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon. I stamped the sentiment with night of navy ink and punched it out with the modern label punch. The strip behind the main panel was created with kraft card stock, punched along both edges with the scallop trim border punch. I added a strip of ballet blue and then pierced both edges. The main image panel is mounted to the base with dimensionals.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
