Curtain Call...Wishes



Good Monday Morning Peeps!

My card today is made for Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge-Act 27. The colors this week are Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery and Whisper White.

My card base is white, followed by another layer of white that I embossed with my Swiss dot EF. I mounted that to the base with foam tape. The layers across the bottom are made up of pink pirouette and melon mambo. I used a new MS punch I got from a friend, a little birthday prezzie, I love Prezzies!!! I added a row of piercing and some pink pirouette ribbon.

The main image is made up of some buttons and the stem is from an old retired SU set, "Big Blooms". I was going through some old sets to sell and came across this set and it had this stem/leaves stamp. Perfect for making some of those button flowers I have been seeing around. So cute huh? I stamped the stems with certainly celery ink and then "doodled" in some grass across the bottom with my certainly celery marker. The pink button comes from the Sherbet Designer buttons and the melon mambo ones are some I had in my stash. I attached the buttons with some white embroidery floss. I added the sentiment across the top with melon mambo ink, it comes from the "Heard from the Heart" stamp set. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to center it up. I then added some melon mambo and pink pirouette mats. I then added this square panel to the base with more foam tape. I finished it off with three silver pearls.

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