Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 50

Hello everyone! It's time for another great challenge over at Stacey's Stamping Stage! The Curtain Call colors for this challenge are just fabulous! The colors celebrate the changing of seasons with rich dark reds, mustard, and greens. Let's all welcome fall together with the Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 50.

I actually have two cards for everyone! I loved the colors so much that I just had to make another one. Then I couldn't decide which one to post for the Curtain I'll just post both of them! :)  Here's my first card for this challenge. I began with my Spellbinders Impressabilities plate. After embossing my sand colored cardstock, I continued and decided to color in the spaces in between. Since the area was a bit big, I just patted my olive ink pad straight onto the cardstock. The effect was just so nice! I also just got this new stamp set in from Stampin' Up. It's actually out of circulation already, but I really wanted it and had to go look for it on Ebay, Lesson learned, next time you want a stamp set don't wait until they stop producing it before getting it! Haha! I colored in the flower with my water color pen. You'll have to excuse me, I'm just a beginner when it comes to coloring! :) 

My second card is a little bit more softer. I just love this olive polka dot patterned paper from My Mind's Eye! It was just perfect for this challenge. I stamped the lower panel of the card with my Prima flourish. (One of my favorite stamps!) I tried to keep things simple on this one, I just tied a bow, stitched the edges and attached my paper flower. I finally got to use this one. I'm afraid I'm making them much faster than I actually get to use them! :) 

I hope I've provided you with enough inspiration for this one! Well? What are you waiting for? Let's play! :)
