Curtain Call {ACT59}

curtain call 59Hello everyone~

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I know we are always busy toward to the end of the year no matter what part of country you live but I hope you can take a little time for yourself and play the Curtain Call Color Challenge {ACT59} with us :)

Please visit Stacey’s Stamping Stage for more detail about the challenge.

Here is my card with using the color combo.



What do you think? I was not sure how I added the gray into the holiday theme card but I really love how it turned out! I used KSS Multi Step Winter Cardinals set and 3 Step Bells set for the word, “PEACE”. I used the sketch from Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #84 (MMSC#84) …thank you, Pricilla for uploading all sketches for December at once. It really help me to create my cards before my vacation!

These are the steps I did for each image (all inks are Stampin’ Up!)
(Cardinal) 3rd – cherry cobbler, 2nd – real red, 1st – so saffron, 4th – basic gray

(Pine) 4th – basic gray, 3rd – chocolate chip, 2nd – always artichoke, 1st – old olive
