It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

For my card I chose to go with a lime colored key!  When I saw this sentiment in PTI Tulip Time set, I thought it could work for so many different occasions.  Of course, I really wanted to stamp the tulips too, but I resisted the temptation and just used the sentiment with a lime key, of course!   

I stamped the sentiment several times in black using the MISTI.   I die cut and stacked the PTI key 3 times using some sour apple card stock.  I used the MISTI again to perfectly place the "congratulations" onto the key.  I finished with a few clear and green sequins. 

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!

Stop by the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge:  (Key Lime) for the challenge details and to play along with us!

I have a second card to share for today!

For my second card I am playing along with this week's PTI MIM Challenge.  We are to do a sponge ombre effect using a stencil.  I used Ranger Mini Cubes, Blending Tools, and Memory Box Mesh Stencil.  I sponged and layered the Savior die cut three times and inlaid it  into the Layered Banner Banter frame. Perfect fit!  Love that!  

I white embossed the sentiment from the Savior Mini set.  I added some loose threading and a few sequins to finish the card.  I am playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch.


As always thanks so much for stopping by!
