Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 51

Hi friends! It's Sunday again, that means it's Curtain Call time!!! Stacey has a wonderful color combination for everyone this week! I just love how the colors are so soft and inviting! I was very excited to make this one.

I didn't have So Saffron, so I used Lemon Tart instead. We have to work with what we've got right?! :) I dry embossed the sand colored cardstock. And I actually inked one side of the embossing folder with white ink to make the image pop. I just love this technique ever since I found it while blog surfing. The little frame behind the sentiment is from Provo Craft, I can't stop using it! I just love the dimension it adds! I also adhered some bling on the top and bottom. The flourish and sentiment are from Vintage Labels (SU). The lace and the frame are actually white, I really have to get a light box!!! Suggestions anyone? :)

Cardstock - blue, sand (Bazzill), lemon tart (PTI), white (Paper Company)
Stamps - Vintage Labels (SU), Victorian Frippery (WMS), Polkadot basics (PTI)
Others - embossing folder (Provo Craft), ribbon (Wendy), rhinestones (Recollections), lace (Offray), edge punch (EK Success)
