Curtain Call Act 51...Here for You!!!

Happy Sunday!!!

Guess what...I have two sick puppies again...yesterday my poor hubby and my middle daughter Rebecca came down with the flu...!!! Keep your fingers crossed that I'm NOT next...yikes!!!  Since we are staying home today I hope I get to stamp a few extra challenges...at least I'm wishful think..!!!

Just in case you have some extra time...how about playing the Curtain Call Act 51 with us??? Stacey has created some super dreamy colors and I bet you love them too!?!


Here is my take on the colors....



I must admit I'm not a huge *blue* color fan, but I'm really lovin' the new SU Marina Mist color. I think I have to use it more often now!!!

The flower image and sentiment are from the beautiful SU Set called *Friends 24-7*. The BG image is from the Flourishes Set called Thank You. I added some scoring to the So Saffron CS and added some Marina Mist Satin Ribbon and topped it off with a new SU Antique Brad.

For more inspiration check out the ideas from the entire Curtain Call Team ~
