What a delightful mix of colours Stacey has come up with this week. Love the softness of the colours with a pop of black. I have often used black, pink and white together, but would have never thought of adding kraft to the mix. In all honesty, until I became a Curtain Call Crew member and had to buy some Kraft because Stacey had it in a few of her colour challenges, I had never really used Kraft - gasp!! I know, I 'm slow on the pick up! However, I can honestly say it could very well become my next addiction LOL!
Once again, I turned to Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch. Note to self -- make sure to use a different sketch next week so my card can be added to the link on her blog (which closes on Thursdays) and have a chance to be the winner of the random selection and have my card featured on her blog. Either that, or make two cards using her sketch LOL!
Sorry, I regressed...back to the card! The inspiration picture made me want to duplicate the wall pattern on my card, but it just didn't work with what I was trying to create so I'll have to save that for another time - which may end up being sooner than later! Out came my Verve wreath for the circle portion of the sketch. Each point on the wreath has a black half pearl (even though they are hard to see in the picture) and the sentiment is popped up and underscored with pink half pearls. Since I don't have the corner punch to go with this Stampin' Up! border punch I had to wing the corners of the white panel. Needless to say, that issue has now been rectified via an order LOL! In hindsight I'm thinking I should have used VersaMark to put a pattern on the Kraft panel but it's too late now - something else to save for next time.
The rest of the Curtain Call Crew have some wonderful samples for your inspiration.
