Curtain Call Colour Challenge Act 26


Love the grays with a splash of yellow which Stacey chose for this week's Curtain Call Colour Challenge.  That being said, I had a bit of an issue picking a sketch to use for this card.  For some reason, I couldn't wrap my mind or this colour combo around any of the sketches which were posted this week on the various blogs I follow.  Add that to my sketch designing skills being basically non-existent (believe me, I am forever indebted to those who create and share their sketches on line so I can use them LOL!) I had to move to Option B.

I have noticed my tendency to use a lot of Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenges for my Curtain Call cards.  Not sure why, it just seems to work out that way.  Probably because I just love her sketches!  That being said, Option B entailed a quick click of the mouse and browsing through the Word file in which I keep all of Karen's wonderful sketches.  This one caught my eye and I was off and running, I mean creating :D   

Teresa Kline recently used the Verve flower image on this card and it inspired me to use mine.  The Swirls embossing folder matched the swirls on the flowers (I used the negative side), the ribbon was from one of my Michael's ribbon bin diving adventures, and the butterflies finished things off nicely. 

The rest of the Curtain Call Crew have some wonderful samples for your inspiration.

We'd love it if you joined us too!!  Simply create a card using this week's colours and add your card to Mr. Linky on Stacey's blog.  If  you are uploading to a public gallery, please make sure to use the keyword Curtain Call.  Each week, Stacey will select one person to receive her "I Got The Lead At The Curtain Call"  Award as well as five people to receive her "I'm A Top 5 Curtain Call Show Stopper" Award which you can post on your blog, so come on over and join the fun!

Have a fabulous day, and thank you for stopping by and sharing a part of yours with me :D

Beauty, Marisa! Love the layout you chose and the way you stamped the images. The ribbon is great, even greater that it was a bin find! Love how you embellished your butterflies, too! You're an inspiration each week!

I think I've fixed the sermon link back on my blog! I linked it up incorrectly, lol. Great introduction to my church, eh? I attend CCV (Christ's Church of the Valley) in San Dimas, CA. We have an incredible pastor with a ginormous gift for teaching. The sermon was titled, "Celebration of Recovery." If you get a chance, watch it... It was AMAZING!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Well, I had no idea you were with Curtain Call - I will HAVE to play!! Your colors are stunning on your card. And aren't the people who have sketches THE BEST - LOL I am constantly looking.

I would not have thought to put these colors together, but I really like them! I never know what to do with that floral image (in fact, I don't think I ever inked it up) but you've inspired me to try it out. :-)

TannyP said...

That color combo is phenomenal - and you've mastered it once again. How long do I have to get that color combo card done?! Love yours and now I really must give it a try =)
