Jen's Curtain Call

This week's Curtain Call Colour Challenge had a wonderful array of colours:  So Saffron, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Going Grey and Very Vanilla.  I paired it up with Jen's Sketch For You To Try to make it a double challenge card.  I love this new SU flower punch and can see myself using it a lot.  Even though you can't really see it in the picture, I curled the petals of the flower a bit with a knife to give it a bit of dimension. 

My trusty crimper made an appearance as did the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The ribbon is from one of my Michael's ribbon bin diving adventures.  I tied the ends with some raffia and a button, added a brad to the center of the flower and two brown half pearls in the lower corner.

The weather continues to give us issues as it is still very warm up here - 56F (12C) and it poured over night.  Thankfully the sun is shining today and they are calling for clear, sunny skies for the next week which will be fabulous!  Olympic fever has hit the city BAD!  There was a three hour line up to get into a department store to buy Olympic apparel the other day and another three hour line up to get through the cash register!  So wonderful to see all the red and white in the crowds as well as the wonderful support the Canadian athletes are receiving.  Our gold medal win has launched Vancouver into an electric atmosphere - can't wait to get down there and be a part of it this weekend!

Have a fabulous day, and thanks for sharing a bit of yours with me :D

I've heard of dumpster diving before, but never ribbon bin diving - lol! I'm so envious of your 56 degree weather...don't think we made it out of the 30's today! Glad you're enjoying the frenzy of the Olympic activities. :-)
