Curtain Call # 44

Good Morning and a Happy Monday to you all!

We have torrential rain here in the east of the country today. I`m hoping it eases off a bit before I have to walk to work. There`s nothing worse than turning up looking like a wet rag and trying to look cool and sophisticated, lol.

My mojo is still on a go slow but I managed to make a card for this weeks Curtain Call # 44.
Here is the inspiration piccy,  

And here`s what I managed to come up with,
My red looks quite pink in this photo but it is red IRL.

I made an A6 card, top fold with white hammered card and scored some lines to give it a bit more texture.
I added some Gingham paper from Pink Petticoat.
inside the scored lines.
I used my new Chrysanthemum stamp from Waltzing Mouse to make the flowers and the stems are actually butterfly trails from the Stampmans Flutterby stamp set.I cut the image out with a nestie oval die.
I added some yellow ribbon and a bow along the top and some blue flat back pearls along the bottom.
The sentiment is by Anitas.

Well in the time it`s taken me to write this post, the rain has slowed to a steady drizzle ( yuk) so fingers crossed for some brighter skies. I also hoping my mojo will come back soon and give me a kickin the right direction. I bought loads of lovely ribbons over the weekend and can`t wait to start using them.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
