Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 19

This Curtain Call Color Challenge will remain at the top of the page through the week. To see new postings, please scroll down.

This polaroid shot of Susannah Tucker's was a fabulous inspiration for me this week, and I hope you will love it, too! Go check out Susannah's creative photography for yourself at Susannah Tucker...a photo blog. The colors of the butterflies and cage inspired me to use Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette, Bashful Blue & Very the soft cream, pink and blue with that contrasting berry!

Join us for the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 19 and you could be one of next Show Stoppers to earn this badge!

For You

I sponged the edges of each layer on my card today...wanted to give it a soft/vintage look. The Bashful Blue card base is layered with Pink Pirouette & Candy Lane DSP, then wrapped with Very Vanilla Satin ribbon. The button was attached to the bow with a piece of Linen Thread. For the main panel, a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock was stamped with Fine Flourish and the greeting, punched with the Scallop Edge punch, and finally finished up with a hand-cut Rich Razzleberry stamped butterfly from the Great Friend stamp set...and yes, the pearl accents are from the Pretties Kit. Hope you'll join me for this week's color challenge!

Stamps: Great Friend, Fine Flourish
Paper: Bashful Blue, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla CS, Candy Lane DSP (retired)
Ink: Bashful Blue, Rich Razzleberry
Other: Stampin' Sponge, Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Button Bouquet Designer Buttons (retired), Linen Thread

I love Susannah Tucker, she is such an amazing photographer.
I did her unravelling course last year and it was fantastic!

We don't have Rich Razzleberry here in Australia yet - But we will very soon!!

I haven't entered your Curtain Call before - I might just give it ago this week :)

Susannah said...

Thanks for featuring my photograph!

Spring Blossom - I think possibly you have me confused with Susannah Conway, who runs an ecourse and her blog is called Unravelling. She is amazingly talented!

Such a lovely colour combo this week Stacey - I LOVE the addition of Razzleberry! And I love your card... I wanted to use the butterfly too, but then I thought that probably there will be several more submissions with it, so I went for a floral :)

Lynn Put said...

Wonderful card Stacey! I love these soft pretty colors and great layout you have here!

Trish *Spring Blossom* said...

ok I've put in my entry - my very first for the CCCC!

Julie Davison said...

Oops! Just realized I used white instead of vanilla. I think I like vanilla better with these colors. Oh well! Hope you like my card!

Rebecca said...
