Stamping 411 Sketch #163 & Curtain Call Act 42

There are so many great challenges out there that I thought I'd throw my hat into another one I've never played with before. Stacey's Curtain Call had a great colour combo this week and I paired it up with Stamping 411's Sketch.

This sketch it a clean and simple one but I took it to another level with all my layers. I got the idea from the great 2010/2011 Stampin' Up Idea Book & Catalogue page 186. There are so many great samples in the SU catalogue that I love to have it around just for that purpose.

Once I added all those scalloped layers, I started layering my ribbons. I doubled up the Peach Parfait Ribbon and ruffled the Early Espresso Satin by gathering it with Linen Thread. To top it off I used images from Punch Potpourri. The name says it all for this set. There is a punch to match every stamp in this set. It is a hostess level 1 set, so get a few friends together for a min. $200 order and it's yours for free! Plus $20 free merchandise of your choosing!
