Curtain Call Act 43



What a fun mix of colours Stacey has chosen for us this week.  Fun and funky came to mind when I saw them so I pulled out my Cheap Talk set and went to work as it is fit the colours perfectly, in my mind anyway LOL!

I paired the colours up with this week's OCC Sketch.  The orange panel has some flowers stamped on it in VersaMark which you can't really see...they do all a lot to the card.  Had to eyeball the sentiment under the branch since the stamping sheet of my Stamp-a-ma-jig has gone AWOL.  It's a teensy weensy bit off as I had to make room for the ribbon.  I used black half pearls for the bird's eye and the flower centers for a bit of dimension.

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
