Curtain Call Colour Challenge: Act 56

Stacey has another fabulous colour challenge for you today. I loved this one and man it was a breeze putting these together. These are some of my favourite shades! These actually remind me of the first time I played with Curtain Call. Check it out here. That was one of my favourite cards. Well here is what I did with them this time.

I decided to make it a roughed up card again and used Card Patterns Sketch #90 for my layout. The dsp is from the Level 1 Hostess 6x6 In Color paper stack. Then I embossed the Whisper White cardstock with the Elegant Lines Folder. I roughed up all the edges with my scissors and sponged everything with Chocolate Chip ink. I sprayed the corners with water, scrunched them and then quickly dried them with my heat gun to set the crinkles.

My Chocolate Chip ribbon is the Satin Ribbon from the Summer Mini. You would not believe how it saddens me that there is absolutely no Chocolate Chip ribbon in the cattie. I stocked up before it was all gone. I threaded some So Saffron buttons with Linen Thread and twisted it a little each time before adhering them down.

The sentiment is from On Your Birthday. You might notice that I actually changed the shape of the Designer Label Punch a little. I wanted it to hug the words a bit tighter. More roughing up the edges with the scissors and sponging again. To top it all off I added a few butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit. I layered a few to spruce them up a bit.
