Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Keep It Simple!

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!

Happy Friday!  For my card, I created  a "Celebrate You!" card.  I stamped a fun and simple background using the "Celebrate" sentiment from PTI Birthday Cheer repeatedly stamped in soft stone  at an angle for added interest.  

To keep with the simplicity theme as well as a writing focus from the inspiration picture,  I watercolored a background using Distress Ranger Inks in Fired Brick and Candied Apple.   I die cut the word "YOU" from PTI Phrase Play #1.   I added fun foam to the back and popped it up over some silver threading.  I finished with a few sequins.  

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