Curtain Call Challenge Act 62

I LOVED the colors for this week's Curtain Call Challenge Act 62!  They are just so beautiful together and go right along with one of my favorite color schemes of aqua and brown! 


I made this card with a special friend in mind! 


I used a few new stamp sets.  The snowflakes (LOVE these images!!) are from My Cute Stamps and are called "Let it Snow".  I love snowflake images and these are just some of the cutest I've seen!  The music background stamp is PTI's Background Basics: Music.  I can see this being used on SO MANY cards!!  I am just really pleased with how the background turned out!


I used some tea dye ink on the edges of the white paper to give it an aged look. I also stamped the music on the tag with VersaMark and tied it with Cappuccino twine from The Twinery.


Thanks for coming by today! I will have a special post up tomorrow morning so be sure to stop back by!  

We are going to run to town today to buy a new bed for Sadie.  When I told her (she's 2 1/2) she squealed, put her hands on her cheeks and said, "A new bed?  For me?"  She was so excited!  Love moments like that!  I hope you have a fabulous day!

  1. Jen....my gosh this is just the prettiest card! I mean those snowflakes layered behind the music.....perfect! I love the sentiment on the tiny tag with the mini scallop! I think THIS card ranks up there for me as a top card of 2010 of yours (along with the tree one with the French knots that u won Wplus9 for)!!!! Seriously.

    As for Sadie, are you buying her a big girl bed? She will love it! Payton got hers last summer or so and she was soo excited! Miss talking to you!
