Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 31

May 23, 2010

Happy Sunday everyone!!  I hope this post is finding you well!  Today means a new Curtain Call Color challenge, courtesy of Stacey's Stamping Stage blog.  So, without further are the colors this week:
Loving the soft colors of this week...although, they definitely challenged me by using them all together.  I did use sketch 91 from the Clean & Simple blog this week....I always love the sketches they come up with!  I did omit the scallop edge, because I just wasn't feeling it for this card.
"When I think of You..." supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Glitz Designs
Stamps/Ribbon: Renaissance by Design (Strictly Sentiments set) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: peacock gold)
Felt Flower: Provo Craft
Jewels: Zva Creative
Button: Doodlebug Designs
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Embossing Border Folder: With Love by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold light purple cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a white cardstock block, and cover the bottom with floral patterned paper.  Emboss a flower border right above the patterned paper strip using a Cuttlebug & a "With Love" border folder.  Tie ribbon around the seam, and adhere the entire block to the front of the purple card base.  Adhere the felt flower and leaves to the right side of the seam, and top with a bow & pink button.  Stamp the sentiment to the middle of the white cardstock.  Adhere three jewels over top of the sentiment, and accent the felt flower with jewel flourishes. 

Be sure to check out what the other Curtain Call ladies did for this is sure to be lovely! ♥♥♥

Casey had a FANTASTIC divisional track meet this weekend!  He took 2nd place in the 100m dash & 400m relay, 3rd place in the 200m dash & 300m hurdles, and 4th place in the 1600 relay.  This means he will be going to the state track tournament next weekend in every single event he started out with in divisionals...first time he has ever done that in track!  Awesome job, brother!  So, next weekend is the state track meet on Friday and Saturday....and then he graduates on Sunday.  Craziness!! 

Well, better get going for now!
