Curtain Call Color Challenge: {Act 59}

This is my second post for today so you can scroll to see the first one if you like!

I am here again today with the Curtain Call Color Challenge! When I saw Stacey's inspiration photo, I knew exactly what I wanted to do! I always "build" my cards in my head before I make them and this photo gave me inspiration right away!


So here is my card....

I don't know if you can tell but the woodgrain has white in the grooves.  I inked up my IP with Fresh Snow and then ran the gray paper through the Big Shot.  Just like Stacey's picture, it looks weathered! 

For the leaves, I lightly inked up one of the leaf stamps from PTI's Turning a New Leaf and stamped the image on the back of this Bo Bunny paper!  Then I cut out the image and glued the stamped side down!  Then I added some bling and a little ribbon treatment!

What a fun color combo!  Thanks for coming by again today!  I always appreciate when you can visit!  Have a fantastic weekend!  Join me back here Sunday for the DeNami blog hop!  :)
