Curtain Calling Verve


This week, Amber decided to combine the sketch with a colour challenge of brown, turquoise and orange.  As it turns out, these are this week's Curtain Call colours, so I got a two-fer :)  Absolutely love this colour combination! 

I pulled out Verve's Autumn Splendor, which I won through the release sketch challenges for the last release, and went to work.  Just love how Julee included the same shape leaves in different sizes as well as just their outlines.  Endless possibilities and combinations!

I stamped three of the small leaf images on the turquoise background panel with VersaMark to create a bit of a pattern (bit hard to see in the picture), and then used one of the large leaf images as my focal point.  The sentiment is a bonus "thanks for your order" stamp Julee included in one of my orders a while back.  The bling on the focal panel is a la Maureen.  Love how she often adds little touches of bling on her cards.  In my case, it filled in the empty space on the right of the leaves perfectly :)

The more I look at this colour combination, the more I want to make another card using it!  Think I know what I'll be doing today LOL!  Have a great day!

Isn't this a fab color combo? You always have me adding Verve sets to my wish list! The leaf stamps are wonderful, and I love the little details like the scallops below the sentiment and the perfectly placed gems. Wonderful use of the colors this week!

Did you have them mailed to your US PO box? I still don't have mine and ordered the Friday afternoon of the release! EEK! I really would like to use them this weekend :) Your card is making me impatient again!! LOL

As soon as Julee sneak peaked these leaves, I knew they had your name written all over them! I'm so excited to see what all you are going to create with them... This first creation is AMAZING! LOVE those leaves in the middle and the little touch of bling (I think Maureen's on to something there... lol). And the aprong lace punch looks like the ribbon! How fun is that?!
