Curtain Call Balloons...


Welcome to another Curtain Call colour challenge! Sorry for not posting this week but I went back to work (albeit only two days a week!) and had our living room replastered so life has been a bit hectic!

Anyways, check out this week's colours:
Such bright and fresh colours! Now in the UK we don't have the new colours yet.... BUT... my fab friend Vannessa has managed to get her hands on some from the US and she very kindly sent me a sample of each - yay! So I was able to play with the exact colours - although I had to ration my useage of them due to not having a lot to play with! This is what I came up with:

I used the balloon from Crazy for Cupcakes and paper-pieced the balloons with Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight cardstock and coated both with crystal effects. I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop this week - love their sketches!! Their 'spin' was to 'think school' and I thought my primary colours on the card was a bit of a school link (primary school... ok a bit tenuous but it works in my head!). I added some white satin ribbon with a PTI button and a bunch of piercing to finish.

The Curtain Call Crew has samples to show you today, too, so make sure you stop by to see:
