Curtain Call # 45

I`m back again!

Wow! 3 posts in one day. Never before in the history of my blog have I ever managed 3 posts I don`t think lol.

Here is the colour swatch for Curtain Call # 45 

Now, as you all know, I don`t have any of these Stampin` up colours so I`ve had to substitute everything. I also had a problem trying to work out what colour ` Concord Crush` is. At first I thought it was dark purple but looking at other peoples entries it looks more blue. So, if I`ve gone horribly wrong, I apologise.

Here is my card;

I made an A6 top fold card using white hammered card stock.
The green DP is  Papermania Capsule Collection, punched with a Fiskars scallop punch along the side.
I`ve added some dark blue card, also punched , along the side of the green.
I stamped my image which is by My Minds Eye, in dark blue ink onto kraft card and cut it out with a nestie labels 4 die. I then cut it down further along one edge .
My sentiment is by Papertrey,also stamped in dark blue onto kraft and cut out with a smaller labels 4 die.

Even though I`m not sure I`ve used the correct colours I`m still rather pleased with this one. It`s a bit different to my usual style and I`ve enjoyed playing around with it.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  2. Hi Lynne, I think you've captured the colour scheme perfectly - your card is stunning! Love the way you've trimmed the the Kraft card Nestie and the whole layout is beautiful.

  4. Really creative, as I always say I wouldn't know where to start but you've obviously got the knack. xxx

  5. Lynne, this is wonderful! Great blend of the colors! I really should try the partial shape off the edge look! Really like that!

  6. Love this lay out and the double scalloped border is stunning!
