Curtain Call Colour Challenge: Act 21

It is that time again, time for yet another of Stacey's Curtain calls!  Again this week the colours are a fantastic mix.  I had my card all done and then decided to add one final touch- doh!  When finished I decided I really wasn't happy with the result- back to the drawing board!  I   But I was able to salvage some (after I completed the 2nd card) and am now happy with the result- card #1
For my 2nd card I used the colours from Act 21 with the Simply Saturday layout from Andrea's Stamping Moments from last week.
Remember to stop by all Curtain Call Crew Design Team members blogs to check out their creations, well worth spending sometime to have a look at at their amazing workfor some inspiration!

Shelley Germann said...

Iwona Palamountain (Chupa) said...

Thanks a bunch Sue! :)
Actually, this was the challenge that really made me look with anger at my limited supplies, as I LOVE these colours, and I wish I could play with them some more... Funny how I'm a designer for two color challenge blogs, and yet all I'm working with is some DCWV cardstock & Grant papers picked from Big W, and a couple of random inks *lol*
Would you have anything for sale? (I'm perfectly fine with used condition) I'm in a huge need for SU! cardstock & inks...

Krista Driessen said...

Angela said...

Katie Ann Brooks said...

Sue!!! Why do I feel like I know you when I don't? I dunno, but I love both your cards, the second is my fave. :D

Katie Ann Brooks said...

did you use to do From Courtney's Closet Challenge's- Libby's little stampin' spot- maybe that is why I feel like I know you. :)
