Warmest Wishes ~ Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge

warmestwishesmaureenplut

Happy New Year everyone!  It’s a brand new year AND we’re starting it off right with a fabulous new challenge over on the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog.  This time we are gettin’ smitten with gelatos and this fabulous photo inspiration…

We have an awesome new sponsor, Linnie's Blooms, who supplied each of the crew gals with a package of Faber-Castell Gelatos!  These amazing little "chapstick"-like watercolors bring about the most beautiful colors! The LEAD of the Smitten challenge will receive a gift certificate to use at the Linnie's Blooms store!

I used my gelatos exactly like Dawn McVey did in her fabulous post HERE.  As soon as I saw Dawn’s card, I knew I had to make a background like hers.  I switched up the colours, though and added my go to doily and ribbon embellishment.  Here’s a close up of the gold embossed mittens.  I had to dig these babies out…the Nested Mittens and the Winter Mittens stamp set by Gina K stamps…these are about 4 years old, but I love the image!

Happy New Year Maureen. Love the pretty card. The background is fabulous and the doily looks great. I also like the mittens and the vellum greeting.

Happy New Year, Diva! Kicking off 2014 in your true signature style I see with that doily, seam binding, button and adorable embellishment! Love it! x

Sweet card! I love the ribbon twine button accent! And the doily is such a perfect touch - those things intimidate me!
