SSSC89 and Curtain Call 52

When I saw the color challenge this week over at the Curtain Call blog, I knew immediately that I wanted to give it a go.  Chocolate chip is, of course, a favorite of mine and and this week it's paired with bermuda bay and tangerine tango.  Who wouldn't love it?  I paired it with the Sweet Sunday sketch challenge.

I've been dying to use my Leaves #2 Sizzix die ever since I saw it used in the October edition of Stampin' Success ( a really great magazine you get when you are a Stampin' Up! demo).  They were cut and embossed and really looked fabulous.  So I figured this color combo would be just the thing to do something similar.

First I cut out the leaves with the Sizzix die, then I put them in my Elegant Lines embossing folder to give them a bit of dimension and texture.  I thought the white panel looked a little plain, so I drew some lines (with my ruler, of course) in chocolate chip and bermuda bay at the bottom left.  The colors are quite dramatic and I think this might make a nice masculine card.  My father's birthday is coming up next month, so he might be the recipient of this card!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today! Pin It Now!

Those embossed leaves are so much fun. I really like the lines of color in the main block as well. Way to rock the color curtain challenge.

It's a good life!
