Curtain Call Act 50 & Mojo Monday 158

Hello friends!  It's Sunday, which means a new Curtain Call Color Challenge!  Stacey has picked a fantastic fall color scheme.  Once again I paired it with the Mojo Monday sketch.

I was totally inspired by the gorgeous fall colored flowers in the inspiration photo.  I pulled out PTI's Delightful Dahlia and stamped the larger bloom and leaves onto a die cut label and the smaller bloom onto a scrap piece of Rustic White cardstock.  I used my Prismas to color them, then layered the flowers using foam adhesive.

I stamped the background panels with the small leaf from Delightful Dahlia using Versamark on Old Olive cardstock.  I didn't have any ribbon to match the challenge colors, so I used a Copic marker to color white grosgrain ribbon.  IRL it matches More Mustard perfectly!  The sentiment is from PTI's 2009 Autumn Tags, and I stamped the dots with one of the single polka dots from Polka Dot Basics.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Old Olive, Crumb Cake), Papertrey Ink (Rustic White)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Delightful Dahlia, 2009 Autumn Tags)
Ink:  Clearsnap (Terracotta), Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Chai tea dye), Versamark, Copic marker
Tools:  Spellbinders (Labels 3 die)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (button, jute twine), thread, ribbon
