Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 45

August 29, 2010

Well, this Sunday brings you my last Curtain Call Color Challenge, courtesy of Stacey's Stamping Stage.  It has been a fun 6 months, and I am sure I will continue participating!!  Without further ado, here are the colors for this week:
And here is what I came up with for the week.  The brown is a bit darker than the sample...but it was all I had that would work!
"We Can All Twinkle" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: My Mind's Eye & Bo Bunny
Stamps/Ribbon: Renaissance by Design (Roots and Wings, Roots and Wings add-on)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: moss green, eggplant, chestnut) 
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Button: craft supply
Twine: Darice Inc. 
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Scalloped Die: Papertrey Ink
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold green cardstock in half to make your card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a brown damask paper block, and adhere to the front of the card.  Cut a scalloped border to the top of a purple dot paper block using a Cuttlebug.  Stamp the tree and sentiment to cream cardstock, and adhere to the purple block.  Tie ribbon around the seam, and adhere a button to the bow with twine.  Adhere the entire block to the front of the card, and then accent with brown pearls.
