Hello

Hi everyone!!  My friend Laurie and I were talking the other day about challenge blogs and I told her that I needed to try some others.  She recommended Curtain Call so when I checked it out, I found that they have a fun color challenge up this week.  I was trying to combine this with another sketch challenge, but it just wasn't working out so I abandoned the sketch and went with just the colors.

Here is my card based on this challenge.


Here are the colors that we were to use:


There is peach (melon berry) in the flowers too but it is hard to tell since I added red to the outsides. 


I love that PTI frame from Tiny Treats: Halloween!  I really like it stamped in a soft color!  Nancy, from the PTI forum, was kind enough to sell me just the frame as I didn't really want the rest of the set.  Isn't she wonderful!!

To get the ribbon around the card, I punched a hole under the main image circle and ran my ribbon through that hole (going behind the main circle image) and also punched a hole in the frame on the left hand side and ran the other side of the ribbon up through that.  Then, I tied the bow.


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the card today!!  Have a great day!
