Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 23

It's that time again...I have another fabulous color challenge to bring to you, courtesy of Stacey's Stamping Stage!  This set of colors is one of my VERY favorites so far...when I first saw it, I couldn't wait for the week to come!  Without further ado...here are the fabulous colors we are challenging you with this week!
I was not only inspired by the colors, but also by the fabulous photo that you see here.  I am seriously coveting that damask wallpaper...I would LOVE that on my walls at home.  Here is what I came up with for the color challenge:
 "I Miss You" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Stamps: Renaissance by Design (Darling Damask & Strictly Sentiments sets)
Ink: CTMH (pigment: vanilla creme) & Clearsnap (pigment: black) 
Ribbon: Renaissance By design
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Glitter: DecoArt
Flowers: craft supply
Corner Rounder: EK Success

Instructions:  Fold pink cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a kraft cardstock block, and stamp the damask pattern to it.  Adhere the block to the front of the card.  Glitter the white paper rose and adhere to the top of the card.  Add two pink paper flowers with leaves to each side of it.  Tie a bow with pink dotted ribbon, and tuck into the top of the flowers.  Stamp the sentiment to the middle of the card, and accent with pearls. 

Sigh...I really love how this card came together.  It makes me happy!  Be sure to check out the other gals cards...it is sure to be a treat!!  ♥♥♥


Until later,

  23. This card is truly beautiful. The saying on it is one I had to write down. I lost my best friend at the young age of 38.....and these words touched me.
