SS130210 and Curtain Call: Act 17

Two in one!! Welcome to the Stacey's Curtain Call Colour Challenge: Act 17 and Andrea's Stampin Moments SS130210. When I first saw the colours of the CCCC, I was a little worried, I loved all the colours but was unsure about adding in the going gray. But it all came together quite well and I am very happy with the outcome. They certainly aren't colours that I would normally put together, but that is the great advantage of playing along with the colour challenges and the layout challenges alike- taking you beyond what you would normally do. Why not give it a go and play along with one or both the challenges too!

The recipe:

Stamps: PTI Background Basics:petal power, Through the trees

Ink: SU Chocolate chip, going gray, so saffron and more mustard

Cardstock: SU Chocolate chip, So Saffron, More Mustard, Very Vanilla and Going Gray

Accessories: SU 1 1/4"& 1 3/8"circle punches, SU So Saffron grosgrain ribbon, Kaiser dark brown pearls

Thanks for Stopping by
