Curtain Call Act 56


Hello friends!  I'm back (finally!) with another card to share for this week's Curtain Call Color Challenge.  This week's inspiration photo is drool-worthy, wouldn't you say?


I hope you don't mind another fall card!  I was recently the happy recipient of a retired stamp set from Stampin' Up! that needed a new home.  Thanks to Pam for offering up this beautiful set!  She still has some goodies up for sale on her blog if you want to hop on over and check it out.

I can't say I'm out of my slump yet, as my first card wound up in the recycle bin and I feel like this one needs something more.  But it's a start!  The last week has just been incredibly stressful, and now my dear hubby is out of town for a long weekend so I'm just sort of muddling along.  Thanks for hanging in there with me!

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron), Papertrey Ink (white)
Stamps:  Stampin' Up! (Grand Cornucopia, retired), Papertrey Ink (2009 Autumn Tags)
Ink:  Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Chai tea dye), Copics
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack die, Woodgrain impression plate), Spellbinders (circle die)
Accessories:  Prismacolor Premier pencils, thread

You know the rest of the crew will have some fabulous creations to share, so be sure to hop along and check them out!

Love how you layered the nesties on this card and what a wonderful image. Hang in there with hubby gone. I remember those times well...lots to do, kids to entertain, arguments to stop, cooking, cleaning etc. etc. and little to no down time from things. Much easier to read a book than try to be creative and stamp. Hang in there (((hugs))).
