Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Casual Christmas


We are back with our newest  Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge and it is entitled CAS-ual Christmas", and I'm excited to share that CAS-ual Friday Stamps is our fabulous sponsor.  Plus they are joining us this week by hosting their own CAS-ual Christmas challenge.  A great twofer challenge this week :)   The LEAD of the CAS-ual Christmas challenge at the Curtain Call will receive a CAS-ual Fridays Stamps set of their choice, and there are a plethora of beauties to chose from!


I used their wonderful Christmas Carols set for my card and tried to keep it on the CAS side.

Love the poinsettia images and how they come in three sizes so you can chose to use them solo or layer them up, which is what I chose to do on my card.  Since "joy" is my favorite Christmas word, I immediately reached for this wonderful sentiment.  PTI's linen embossing plate added a little texture on the white panel and I just "had" to add a crimped panel wink, wink.

You can check out all the challenge details over on the Curtain Call Inspirations Challenge and also get a chance to view all the wonderful Curtain Call Crew samples!  Should you wish more details on the Curtain Call Crew's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.


You have until November 25th at 8:00 a.m. CST to complete a new card/project using the inspiration picture and linking it up accordingly.  The Lead and Show Stoppers will be announced on November
30th.
