Curtain Call 64 Faithfullness....

Happy Sunday!!!

Hope you all are having a great weekend so far??? I'm so thrilled to tell ya, that both of my daughter's basketball team won...yeah!!! Not, that they had to....I just want them to have fun, but it's like the icing on the cake right??? Mimi was super hilarious, she is the only girl in her *Wizard* team and she has no clue how to triple the ball...or really shoot a basket. She is in her own little *Mimi World* when it comes to playing basketball...LOL...but hopefully at the end of the season she'll have at least an idea what to do!?! Our Sarah on the other hand was amazing.....she played awesome and lead the team to their win! Can you tell I'm a proud mommy?!? All of the girls really played awesome and my Sarah is just proud to play with her friends!!!

Okay, after coming back from the games I had a chance to make this card for today's Curtain Call Act 64.  Stacey, choose once again some beautiful colors for today's challenge .....check them out!!!


Here is my take on it...........



To be honest with you I really didn't think that the Pacific Point would coordinate with the the new Marina Mist, but they really do look great together and I'm glad I had a chance to try this combo :) !!!

Here is how my card came together....My card base is White PTI CS. I added another White CS which I scored and pierced on the top. Next I added the Pacific Point DP and I decided to round of the corners. My sentiment is from the new ODBD Faith Set. I also made a card with this Set yesterday...just in case you missed it click HERE. I'm in L.O.V.E with these new Beaded Spellbinder Dies. Can you guess why I love them so much...LOL??? That's right, because I can bedazzle them with my Silver Pearl!!! You have to admit they do go good with the Die :) !!! At last I added some more Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist CS, a punched border using the SU Eyelet Border Punch. My card was embellished with some Marina Mist Satin Ribbon, Anna Griffin Silver Button, a Red Felt Prima Flower and some Always Artichoke Leaves. Hope you like it?
