Curtain Call {ACT54}



Happy Halloween everyone!

It’s time for Curtain Call Color Challenge {ACT54}!! I hope you are having a wonderful & safe weekend. We went to two fall festivals yesterday. Kids have already gotten some candies that will last for a month…but I’m planning to take my son to Trick or Treat tonight. My daughter is not going…she thinks she is too old for that…makes me sad a little :( but I respect her decision.

OK, this week’s Curtain Call is a kind of monochromatic color scheme and I enjoy playing with those beautiful orange/rustic colors. So I made two cards :) I will look forward to seeing what you create! Please visit Stacey’s Stamping Stage for more detail about the challenge.



This card was used  the sketch from Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge (TESC132). The image was colored with Copic markers. To finish off, I embellished the card with satin ribbon & rhinestones. The stamps are from Unity Kit of Month set.



I made this card with one layer only… I found the fun one layer sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping (FTL114) and I decided to make a quick fall card using the leaves from Unity. I think those colors work so wonderfully with the leaves!
