Curtain Call Act 42


Not sure I could handle orange walls as per the inspiration piece, but I'm loving the overall colour combination as it reminds me of fall.  We are having rain here for the first time in about six weeks, so I'm totally in character - just missing having the kids in school LOL! 

I immediately thought of Pocket Silhouettes when I saw this colour combination and paired it with this FTL layout from a few weeks ago. I don't have any of the new colours yet so I had to substitute with certainly celery and chocolate chip.  The celery panel is stamped with one of the images from Accent notes to give it a bit of texture and I succumbed to using ruffled ribbon again - just love the look :) 

The rest of the Curtain Call Crew have some samples for you along with our August Guest Designer, Teresa Kline.
And, our August Guest Designer, Teresa Kline at enjoy the va.sunshine


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 42.  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!

Sorry for the slow posting week.  Working for hubby is eating away a lot of my extra time.  Hope to be able to stamp a bit today so I have a few cards to post this week, but not making any promises.  Have a fabulous week and thanks for popping in today.

Marisa, this is beautiful!! You used that sketch and the challenge colors wonderfully. And that ribbon treatment?? Sweet!!! Doesn't it stink when work gets in the way of stamping?? I hate when that happens!! Even so, hope you can fit in a little "me" time this week.

Love it, Marisa! I, too, have fallen prey to the dreaded "ruffled ribbon" lately...it is so darn persuasive. ;) Great job with the colors!
