Curtain Call Act 51



Stacey came up with yet another fabulous colour combination for this week's Curtain Call challenge, so I had to play along again.  I had to substitute the Marina Mist with blue that is close to Cool Caribbean.  Figured the ocean themed titles were a match LOL!

I combined the colours with this week's Clean and Simple Fall To Layout because my Verve flowers were calling my name again :)   I used the Great Friend flower this time and stamped it with French Script for a little pattern on the flower.  The fabulous sentiment is from Kind Words, and I used the Leafy Branch embossing folder on the white panel for a little dimension.  I flipped back and forth between matting the embossed panel with black or leaving it white.  It's amazing how one little mat can change the look of your card so drastically.  As you can tell, the white on white won out :) 

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!!






What's In It?
Stamps:  (Verve) Kind Words, Great Friend
Paper:  So Saffron, Cool Caribbean, Kraft, Black and White
Ink: VersaMark, Black
Accessories:  Leafy Branch Embossing Folder, 5/8" Black Satin Ribbon, Black  Half Pearls, Dimensionals

Beautiful work, Marisa. The flower looks stunning in the different colours, and the pop of black adds even more elegance. I like the effect of leaving the white on white, as it really focuses the eye on the main panel. Love it!
