Curtain Call Colour Challenge- Act #42- Friendship!

Hello and welcome back for another week of Stacey's Curtain Call colour Challenge!  Not sure where this week has gone, it seems like only a blink ago that I introduced the colours from Act 41. Busy busy busy here at the moment, the roller coaster of life is in full swing!!  Anyhoo, better introduce the wonderful colour palette of Act #42, this week we are playing with Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla, another fabulous combination!  Currently in Australia we don't have the pear, peach or espresso (although it is only a matter of weeks before we get out hands on them!!!), I have subsituted, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and Pumpkin Pie.

If you would like to play along, head over to Stacey's Stamping Stage and link your creation in with Mr Linky! Stacey will be awarding one creation with "The Lead" and 5 creations for the "Top 5 show stopper", qualifying to adorn your blog with these stunning badges and share the news with all!!

This weeks card is using the Season of Friendship set, kindly lent to me by the wonderful Chupa!  I was inspired to use this set by the very beautiful cards made by both Chupa and Marisa in Curtain Call #37, a must have set to own or borrow!  Not sure if it will find its way back to its rightful owner-lol!!!
I have finally managed to scrunch some ribbon that stays where I scrunched it, definately must be the kind of ribbon used!!

The Recipe:
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Chocolate chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Chocolate chip
Stamps: Season of Friendship (SU), Butterfly dreams (PTI)
Accessories: Wide chocolate ribbon (SU), stitched grosgrain ribbon (unknown), Kaiser chocolate pearls, Fiskars Apron lace boarder punch,

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Stamping

LOL chick, if you're keeping that stamp, then I'm keeping your Nesties! Mwaaaaa! *wink*
You made this tree sing! I hope you'll have some "me" time later tonight, after all it's still weekend, eh? {huge hugs}

Sweet design, Sue! That partially bunched up ribbon looks awesome! And if I were close enough I'd borrow that darling stamp set also. Great effect with the dark pearls in the tree, gives a super dimensional look.
