Curtain Call Act 25 with Inkspirations Sketch 21 - It's Bright!

Just a quick post this morning as I have to take Luana to her first dance class of the term.

This week the Curtain Call Colour Challenge is a tribute to a few Bold Brights that are being retired, but it hasn't turned out as lary as it could have :) I'm not totally devasted that Only Orange is leaving (it is a useful colour at times), but it's a different story about Pixie Pink. I use it quite a bit, especially for Luana projects. Makeesha's latest Inkspirations sketch (only released yesterday - can you believe I've made a card for it already!) provided the sketch for this card for a friends upcoming birthday.

A close up of the flower for you. I sponged a strip of Whisper White with Yoyo Yellow ink for the band, and the top flower is stamped off with sections highlighted using a Stampin' Write Marker. I curled the petals around my paper piercer to give them a touch more dimension.
Must go and get this girl to dancing!
Thanks for visiting again.

Stamps: Eastern Blooms, A Little Birthday Cheer
Card: Pixie Pink, Yoyo Yellow, Green Galore, Whisper White
DSP: Kaleidoscope (retired)
Ink: Only Orange, Green Galore, Yoyo Yellow
Other: Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon, 3/8" Jumbo Brads
