Curtain Call Act 62


Good morning, friends!  For those of you who celebrated Christmas yesterday, I hope it was wonderful!  I've had a fabulous last few days at home baking, wrapping, and celebrating the holiday with family.  And I can't forget to mention my amazing hubby, who enabled my crafting this year with some new stamps and a Corner Chomper!  I can't wait to play with my new toys.  Were there any surprises for you under the tree this year?

The last week has flown by so quickly, it's hard to believe it's time for another Curtain Call Color Challenge!  I am so ready to make some non-holiday cards, how about you?  Stacey has chosen one of my absolute favorite combos this week.  These colors are just so serene, perfect for the calm after the storm of the holiday craziness, don't you think?


Okay, I'm just now realizing that I had written down Vanilla instead of White for this challenge, so just increase the brightness on your computer screen and it will almost look like I used white, 'kay?  

I just love layering PTI's two butterfly dies, plus a punched Martha Stewart one.  The larger green one is debossed with PTI's Diamond impression plate for a little more depth.  The label stamp is from the Mat Stack 1 Collection.  Oh my, do I love the new Mat Stack stamps!  I embellished this one with some pearls, and I used a sentiment from the same set.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream), Stampin' Up! (Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 1 Collection, Background Basics:  Text Style)
Ink:  Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (butterfly dies, Mat Stack 1 die, Woodgrain impression plate, Diamonds, impression plate), Martha Stewart (butterfly punch)
Accessories:  Michaels (pearls)


And Sunday just wouldn't be the same if you didn't stop by and see what the rest of the girls have been up to!
