Curtain Call.....My dear Friend




Good Monday Morning peeps!!

My card share today is made with Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 43.

This weeks colors are pacific point, kiwi kiss, tangerine tango and whisper white. I was a little afraid of these colors when I first started but I do like the end result. I had such a hard time getting a good photo of this card, I tried last night and again this morning and couldn't get it. the tangerine looked red the blue didn't look true to pacific, I worked and worked and finally got an acceptable pic, but still not quite true colors. I think the card is much cuter IRL.

The base of my card is Pacific Point and my side panel is made up of tangerine and a strip of kiwi DS paper from the Bella Rose pack. I used the spiral edge punch on the edge, I know I have been obsessing with this punch lately!!!! LOL!! I added some tangerine ribbon and a pretty bow. the sentiment panel is a die cut piece from the retired "Write Stuff" pack. I trimmed it a bit to fit my card. I stamped the sentiment from the "All Holiday" stamp set with pacific ink onto the paper. The paper has a rough texture and doesn't take the ink real well. Across the bottom of the panel I added three little flowers made with tangerine and the three flower punch. I used two flowers stacked to make the flowers. I added white mini brads and punched another flower with kiwi and cut it apart to make the leaves. The sentiment panel is added to the card at an angle with some dimensionals.

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

Great card.
Everytime I see that stamp I WANT it, but I haven't purchased the set yet as many in it are repeats of others I have, but I REALLY love it.

Cute as can be, Vicki! I love the spiral punch, too! I have not used for a moth or so...maybe I should pull it out! And the photo? I know your struggles, but honestly it looks great and I can't imagine it being any cute IRL! It's perfect!
