Curtain Call Color Challenge: {ACT 28}

The Curtain Call Color Challenge: {ACT 28} posting will remain at the top of the blog page until it expires on Friday night. Please scroll down to view the most recent postings.





Isn't this Velvet Ribbon from Cox & Cox just yummy? You know I LOVE ribbon, so these spools drew me right in. There's a bit of a rugged masculine feel to this one, but you'll see below that I couldn't resist to make it a little feminine:)

To participate in the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 28...

1. Create a papercrafted (card, scrapbook page, or 3D) project using these colors or similar shades.
2. Post it on your blog or other public gallery (Splitcoaststampers, Paper Craft Planet, Stampin' Addicts, etc.) using the keywords Curtain Call 28 and make sure to include a link back here to the challenge.
3. Enter your name and the direct link to your project in the Mr. Linky box below.

Please note the new deadline will be Friday night: You have until Friday, May 7th before midnight (CST) to enter your Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 28 project.

Join us for the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 28 and you could be one of the next Show Stoppers! We have two awards up for grabs plus a giveaway (details below)! Those chosen as "The Lead" and "Top 5" will receive an award to post on their blog(s) and share the exciting news!





Happy Mother's Day



Even though the color combination this week lends itself to somewhat of a masculine feel, I decided to make a Mother's Day card. I saw a layout similar to this in the Paper Crafts magazine...love that mag:) That sweet little birdie punch hasn't had nearly enough love from me...it's just so cute and versatile. He looks great in solid cardstock, designer paper, embossed cardstock, you name it...





Stamps: All Holidays
Paper: Rose Red, Not Quite Navy, Kraft, Whisper White CS, Bella Bleu & retired DSP
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand
Other: Big Shot, Birds & Blooms and Little Leaves Sizzlets, Extra Large Bird Punch, Corner Rounder Mat Pack & Paper Piercing Tool, Fresh Favorites II & Kraft Corduroy Buttons, Linen Thread
