Curtain Call 67 Live simply..love much

Happy Sunday everyone!

How is your weekend going so far? We had the most gorgeous day yesterday...the temperatures climbed all the way up to 68 Fahrenheit and we just had to be outside!!! Sarah's team won the basketball game...yeah! Mimi and I had a fun time at the birthday party :) and  I did have a chance to create a new pendant with a matching ring...yeah! I'll be able to show it to you next week, when I get it back!

Anyway, onto my card...this one is for this weeks Curtain Call Act 67. Check out the color combo this week.....


I must admit the Almost Amethyst totally threw me off...LOL!!! But after trying a few different ideas I came up with this card.......


I finally had a chance to ink up some of my PTI images again...they have been poorly neglected. I combined the Falling Leaves Set with the flowers from the Merry Little Christmas Set and the sentiment is from the Little Bitty Bird Set. It's a pretty straight forward CAS design....hope you like it :) ???

Oh, before I forget...I replaced the Cajun Craze with Really Rust. The matching Stitched Ribbon is also from PTI and it's from the Terracotta Tile Collection and so are the Buttons!

I've been asked several times on how I created my bows....I'm using a Bow Easy.....a must have!!! Next I was asked how I *curl* my Scrap Floss...I'm using my SU Piercing Tool and basically just twist the Floss tightly around the long front needle until I'm at the end of my Floss. I pull the curled Floss off very gently so it stays nice and neat...voila! Try it and let me know how you like it :) ?!? If you have any questions please e-mail me directly at silkeledlow@yahoo.com. I'm more than happy to answer your questions!
