Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 9



I chose to use this kitchen display from the Country Living website for the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 9 inspiration. After moving to the country this summer, I have been thinking of changing my home decor from a traditional style to more of an English country style. This pretty fresh bouquet really struck me today with the pop of pink, yellow and red...so fresh! The colors from the photograph are similar to Stampin' Up!'s Pink Passion, Crushed Curry, Real Red, Basic Black and Whisper White.

To play along in the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 9, simply create a papercrafted project using these Stampin' Up! colors (or similar shades from other companies), post it on your blog or other public gallery (Splitcoaststampers, Paper Craft Planet, etc.) using the keywords Curtain Call,link your posting back here, and then come back to enter your name and URL in the Mr. Linky box. You have until Sunday, November 9th at noon (CST) to enter your project.

I will once again be picking my FAVORITE(s) Curtain Call Color Challenge submission(s) that will be announced as the Curtain Call Show Stopper at the end of the week!



Those who are chosen as Show Stoppers will receive this award to post on their blog and share the exciting news! I will be picking more than one Show Stopper each week depending on the number of entries there are. There will be one award given out for every ten Curtain Call Color Challenge entries!



I was inspired from the colors above to make this card. I saw a quilted card called "Getting Quilty" on Dawn McVey's blog that really caught my eye, so I based my layout from it (obviously without the stitching). One of these days, I hope to find the courage to dust off the sewing machine...





Stamps: On Your Birthday
Paper: Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Whisper White CS, Assorted DSP
Ink: Black Stazon
Other: Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain, Corner Rounder, Playground Buttons, Linen Thread

Fun colors! I hope to have the energy to play again this week. I've been missing your challenges, but just haven't stamped much at home lately...

My, this combo is way out of my comfort zone! Look great in zinnias, but can I make a decent looking card?

I hope to play, I've been stalking but haven't made it yet!
