Curtain Call Colour Challenge Act 18

Tonight I have been working with yet again another gorgeous colour combo from Stacey's Curtain Call Colour Challenge. I love Ballet Blue and don't use it anywhere near as much as I would like.

I paired it with the square option of the latest Mojo Monday sketch challenge - my mojo isn't in full enough force at the moment to attempt the circle (lol). I made a 4 1/4" square card (so it would fit in a standard size envelope), but I think I should have made it a bit bigger to pull of the large bow a bit more successfully.

This card started out in my mind as a Mother's Day card for my grandmother (trying to be organised) as she loves earthy colours. However, it didn't end up that way! I finally inked up my Boho Backgrounds set which has been sitting on a shelf for a good few months now. The larger circle was stamped twice in Night of Navy and once in Ballet Blue. One of the Navy circle was punched out with the scallop circle punch and the other I fussy cut the middle part of. The Ballet Blue one had the larger solid circle part punched out with the 1 3/8" circle punch. The upper layers were popped up with dimensionals, but it's a little hard to see that in this photo.

I will be using both the colour combo and the sketch again - they're so versatile!

Stamps: Boho Backgrounds
Card: Kraft, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" circle
Other: Vintage brads, 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Fashion District Rub-ons (retired)
