Curtain Call #39

There's a very cool color combo in this week's Curtain Call Challenge over at Stacey's Stamping Stage! I enjoy these challenges, because they get me inspired by color combos that I wouldn't normally use in my crafting!

I substituted some similar patterned paper for the Wild Wasabi color, and I used Kiwi Kiss for the Certainly Celery. I stamped the tree image in Old Olive and the sentiment and woodgrain background in Soft Suede.

The tree stamp is from Stampin' Up's "Forest Friends" set, and the sentiment is from the new Level 3 Hostess set, "Occasional Quotes."

I embossed a strip of white cardstock in the Big Shot and used some paper from Crate Paper's Brook collection to mat the stamped tree image. The background stamp is from Stampin' Up! (I still need to work on my inking technique for the really big stamps!) I used SU kraft cardstock for the card base.

Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you'll visit Stacey's Stamping Stage this week and play along with the latest Curtain Call!
