Curtain Call........Thanks so Much





Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!!!

Today's card share is made with the color challenge onStacey's Stamping Stage. I also used the sketch challenge over at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog.


The color challenge this week are whisper white, night of navy, pretty in pink, garden green and almost amethyst. Stacey certainly challenges us with her color combos and since I have been struggling lately this really was a challenge for me!

The base of the card is white and I followed that with some night of navy and the DS paper comes from the "Tea Party" paper pack. The stamp set I used is the "Awash with Flowers" double set. The garden green is in the stems and the sentiment. The sentiment is from the "Tiny Tags" stamp set and I used the tag punch to punch it out. I added a photo corner with silver sticky pearls. The BG is split with two pieces of DS paper and a night of navy scallop between them, I added smaller silver pearls to the scallops.

The flowers are stamped with almost amethyst and pretty in pink. I stamped a second flower with the amethyst and added them over the first with some dimensionals.

This card certainly didn't go as planned, when I was putting it together, IE layering up and gluing, I got a couple of smears of the garden green on the main panel, so the ribbon was added across the bottom to hide one of the smears and the silver brads on the flower panel to hide another!!!! So frustrating!!!!

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