Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Kissing Booth


Time for another Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge and this photo gives tons of options for inspiration!  The LEAD of the Kissing Booth challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future Curtain Call challenge!

CC Feb 1, 2015 photo CCFeb1pic.jpg

I hummed and hawed about several colour combinations and using chevrons, but just wasn't happy with them so I finally decided to have some fun and create my own kissing both card!  Pulled out my Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder and created the booth's frame.  The striped paper pulls in the panelling at the bottom of the booth in the photo as do the chevron banners as per the photo.  Added a small, rustic, wooden sign that is nailed to the booth to finish things off (think country fair).  Had too much fun making this card and I think my Valentine's Day card for hubby is now made LOL.  

Check out the rest of the DT's creations for added inspiration.
