Curtain Call Act 46 From The Other Side


When I saw the inspiration piece for this week's Curtain Call colours I had to play along.  Just love the colour mix of the flowers and thus decided to make a flower card - old habits die hard LOL.  It still feels a bit strange being on this side of the Curtain Call crew, but it is wonderful to have a new Crew's creations to enjoy and be inspired by :)

I don't own any of the colours on this week's pallet so I did a clean sweep with substitutions of Garden Green, Pretty in Pink, Apricot Appeal and Real Red as well as some So Saffron ribbon.  Since this is Our Creative Corner's last sketch of the year (sniff, sniff) I just had to use it as I just love their sketches and have used them for quite a few Curtain Call cards. I filled the large panel with a Botanical Blooms scene. embossed my white panel with Diamonds in the Rough,  added some ribbon, a button (from my wonderful Michael's purchase) and the sentiment from the set.  Always nice to get a double challenge card done :)

Think the family will have a low key weekend as we are all suffering from the first week back in school syndrome:  our bodies needing to adjust to new sleeping and waking times, having added activities on the calendar (I already messed up by showing up for my daughter's piano lesson at last year's time rather than our new one - thankfully I got the day right LOL!), celebrating a few family birthdays over at my mom's place and enjoying our last weekend before soccer games begin.  Hopefully I can throw a little stamping into the mix too :)

Have a fabulous day!

Next one will be a doozy!! ttys...oh, did the stamps come? How long have you been waiting? Mine took 13 days in August. My PTI buddy and I are ordering a whack of PTI this release as my dad is flying into Seattle on his way back from Slovenia (his first time back to his parents' village...a trip he has talked about for 20 years)...so we're loading him up with PTI!!! LOL

This is so beautiful, Marisa! I just love how you used this fabulous color combo. Your hand-stamped flower garden turned out beautifully!! Lovely bow, too. Have a relaxing weekend--sounds like your first week of back-to-school was a whirlwind, too :)

Gorgeous, Marisa! Wonderful "substituting" of the colors, I'd never know if you didn't "say" anything. It all looks fabby to me! And I'm addicted to anything floral as well, so I feel your pain...

Love that embossing peeking out from behind those cheery flowers. I remember that set from, last year, was it? It was one I sadly did not get. I like that you chose that set to work with this color challenge.
