The Challenge #10 and Curtain Call


Hope everyone is recovering adequately from their July 4th festivities. =) I, for one, am STILL exhausted and find that I really need a chiropractic adjustment! ha! I hope that doesn't make me sound like a partyer, because I am far from it. Far from it, I say! But all of our home projects last week combined with the marathon cleaning and then the feeding of the guests and subsequent cleaning (which included cleaning after a couple of CAT-astrophes!) have wore me out! I had to follow it up with laundry, laundry, laundry to pack for our vacation. Phew!

On to share my card!  I required a solitary crafty session Saturday after I spent the entire morning cleaning the kitchen. I made several cards I knew I could blog this week at night and keep me feeling connected to my crafty world. I'm hoping it helps curb the withdrawals. =0 Nerd alert!

This card is my favorite from Saturday's batch.

I used color inspiration from The Challenge and Curtain Call's Birthday Bash inspiration.

Since my birthday is Sunday, my baby sisters is Monday, and my Mommy's is one week later -- July means birthdays to me. So I'm always in a birthday mood in the summer.

Here is my card using my PTI Autumn Pattern Pieces stamp set and my coveted Wet Paint III:

I used CTMH's Sunset ink and PTI's Hibiscus Burst to stamp the banners and then used PTI's Simply Charteuse ink and water on an acrylic block to do my ink splashes in the center of my panel. I then stamped the sentiment before placing my panel over a PTI Kraft cardbase. I tied a matching piece of twine (The Twinery) to finish it off. 
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
God Bless,
