Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 47

Well, again it's been a few weeks since my last post.  I've been busy with work and trying to finish my brother's wedding invitations.  They are just about ready to go out, so I decided to sit down and stamp for myself today (even thought I'll mail this card out to someone in the next few days:).  My inspiration for this card was over at my upline's blog, Stacey's Stamping Stage.  These earthly colors were great for a "thinking of you" card.  I used crumb cake for the base of the card and then layered it with always artichoke...of course with a little sponging and distressing.  I pulled out the FREE Deck the Halls DSP that we got at Convention in July and used the early espresso piece paired with a piece of early espresso card stock.  I stamped the images from the Hostess Level 1 Punch Potpourri stamp set and used their cordinating punches...that's what I love about Stampin' Up...everything cordinates!!!  I stamped the greeting using the Hostess Level 1 Silhouette Sentiments stamp set.  And, of course, I had to finish off the card with some crumb cake taffeta ribbon and a retired always artichoke button threaded with linen threat.  Hope everyone is doing wonderfully and has a fantastic week!  Please let me know what you think:)
