Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Winter Wonder


It's a New Year and we are kicking it off with our first Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge of 2015.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Altenew!  A randomly selected participant will receive a stamp set of choice from the Altenew shop, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I pulled the colours from the photo and the bold sentiment from Altenew's Many Thanks set.  There are a plethora of wonderful fonts and sentiments for words of thanks in this set - perfect for any style of thank you card.  Hard to tell, but the cream panel has a linen texture for a little "oomph" as I was leaning towards a more masculine card.  That is a masculine card for men who are manly enough to handle a button with a twine bow on their card wink, wink.  If this isn't the case, I would replace the button/twine combo with a star.

Below is a list of the design team's cards for a bit of added inspiration.

Happy New Year! Very pretty Marisa. Love the sketch, the soft (almost tone on tone) colors... the script greeting looks great.

Such an elegant, handsome card, Marisa!

Hope you enjoyed your holidays. :) I had two weeks in a row where we had a four-day weekend...loved it, but not long enough. LOL

Still enjoying the book you sent me. What a great writer Ann is!

Gorgeous...ooops, I mean, how handsome, dashing and striking your masculine card is! Colours, the repeated thanks, the button and twine: perfect guy card! I noticed Colleen's comment about a book you'd sent her: would love to know the title if you have a chance. I could use a good read...
