Curtain Call

(If you came looking for the Critter Challenge...scroll down)

It's time for another Curtain Call Color Challenge
Don't you just love these colors together?


Make sure you check out what the other DT members have done!
I'm sure they'll all be rocking' the web with their
scrumptious designs today!






















Now onto my card.  I was inspired driving home from work on Friday evening.
One street on my way home has a dozen or so trees that are just full of pink blossoms!
They are so beautiful!  Although I'm not quite sure what kind of trees they are.
I live in central PA, if you know what kind of tree I'm talking about,
please let me know.

Stamps: Branching Out -  SU, Background Basics - PTI
Fillable Frames #2 - PTI
Paper: Kraft, black, white, pink pirouette
Ink: soft suede, versafine black
Misc: Border punch SU, ribbon, jute twine, flowersoft

My card qualifies for a couple challenges today:

Our Creative Corner - sketch challenge

Raise the Bar - a style you don't normally do.
I NEVER use flowersoft!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a beautiful Sunday!
