Curtain Call 70 Happy Birthday

Happy Sunday everyone!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far??? We are officially done with basketball...Sarah's team unfortunatly lost yesterdays game, but that's okay! We can finally enjoy our evenings and weekends again :) YEAH!!!

With this nice weather around here and the beautiful Curtain Call Color Combo Act #70 that Stacey has chosen this week, I couldn't resist making another *Spring* like card. Check out the colors for this week....


Here is my take on it.....



The leaves in the background are from the PTI Turning A Leaf Set and the butterflies are from the
Butterfly Dreams Set. I inked the butterflies in Memento Black and colored them with these Copic Markers ~ BG000, B0000, B02, B06. The Satin Ribbon is from Martha Stewart and I added a Silver Button as well as some matching Scrapper's Floss.The DP in the background is from the SU Tangerine Tango Pattern Print Collection. I also added some scoring on the side and some Silver Pearls.  

Please make sure to check out the beautiful cards the rest of the Curtain Call Team created:

                                     Christina MacLaren ~ Seaglass & Sentiments
                                     Jean Martin ~ Stampin' Scrapper
                                     Julie Lacey ~ Stamps & Taxes
                                     Laurel Seabrook  ~ Seabrook Designs
                                     Makiko Jones ~ MakInk Studio 
                                     Monika Davis ~ M.A.D. Stamper
                                     Piali Biswas ~ Touch of Creation
                                     Stacey Schafer ~ Stacey's Stamping Stage
                             


and don't forget our February Guest Designer, Laurie Willison.

Fabulous, Silke. Love the scoring on the orange panel and the scallops you used.
