Curtain Call Act 28



What a wonderful mix of colours Stacey chose for this week's Curtain Call Colour Challenge!  It's so much fun finding new colour combinations to use, especially ones I don't naturally gravitate towards.  Made my day to have to use Kraft again (even though it isn't the dominant colour in this card) as it is becoming my newest addiction :D  Hey, at least it is a change from Swiss Dots LOL!  

Speaking about new addictions, I'm having a hard time putting down the fabulous All About You set by Stampin' Up!.  Didn't hurt that it was still out on my desk just tempting me to use it again LOL!  Amy Ramsey's sketch from last week provided the perfect oval for the flower image so I was set to go create :D   I used my Diamonds in the Rough embossing folder to give the white panel some texture and stamped some Itty Bitty Backgrounds on the Rose Red panels for a little something.  White ribbon and some silver brads made a nice, visual, diagonal line and I finished things off by stamping the "for you" sentiment in the oval as there was too much white space there for my liking.  I'm loving this colour combo and will definitely use it again - thanks Stacey! 

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

Ok. I know I've had favorites before, but this really IS my favorite. I absolutely LOVE this card, Marisa! Those flowers are gorgeous and they look amazing in the navy and rose colors. I think I'd forgotten how lovely those colors are together.

I'm going to quit typing and just stare at this one for a while. :) Happy sigh.

Great card Marisa and the colors really do look good together. I like the white space and I think it really makes the colors pop. PS: I am also a kraft addict.

This week's sermon was another great one! It was all about thriving in "Babylon" and not just surviving. Read Daniel 1 really quickly before watching. It will help. I got that little tip yesterday from them (I'm a CCV fan on facebook, hehe) and it definitely helped.
