Curtain Call Act 61


Hello, folks!  Are you ready for a new color challenge?  I thought so!  This week's Curtain Call Color Challenge is up, and it's a rich combo that would be perfect for a last minute holiday card but would also work beautifully for many other occasions.  I don't need any more Christmas cards myself, so I decided to look forward to Valentine's Day and make a sophisticated, love-themed card.  Here are the colors we're working with this week:


I used WPlus9's Poinsettia Patterns to stamp the background in Bravo Burgundy.  I just received PTI's Mat Stack #1 Collection, so I had to break it in!  I stamped one of the labels onto kraft cardstock and added an Early Espresso mat.  I die cut a Vintage Cream circle and stamped another image and a sentiment from Poinsettia Patterns.

At first I wasn't happy with the symmetry of this design, and I experimented with a few different embellishments in the bottom corner, but nothing worked with the stamped background so I opted to leave it as is.



The Curtain Call Crew has samples to show you today, too, so make sure you stop by to see:

Jean Martin at Stampin' Scrapper
Julie Lacey at Stamps & Taxes
Laurel Seabrook at Seabrook Designs
Makiko Jones at MakInk Studio
Monika Davis at M.A.D. Stamper

and December Guest Designer, Maureen Plut at Buttons & Bling.

...then play along with us and post your Curtain Call Color Challenge creation using Mr. Linky back at Stacey's Stamping Stage.

Thanks for visiting, friends!  Have a great one!
