I thought I was going to be super late for this party, but I made it! I have been in Colorado for the past week spending time with family we just got home! So here I am typing up my first post of the year! Today's card is for the newest Curtain Call. Let me show you my card and then I will tell you a little bit about it...
Here is this week's inspiration photo...

We have a fabulous new sponsor, Linnie Blooms, for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Smitten challenge!
The LEAD of this challenge will receive a gift certificate to use at Linnie Blooms!
Linnie Blooms gave us a pack of Gelatos to try out. I used the Faber-Castell Gelatos Tropical for my card. I was so excited and I've been watching videos and learning techniques, but I still need some work. So I used my gelatos to tint the embossing paste. Basically, I used my Cricut spatula to scrap off chunks of gelato and then used it as a palette knife to blend the paste and color, until I had the right pink to match the inspiration photo. Then I used a hearts stencil and smeared it on. I sewed on the little banner, after stamping the sentiment. I was hoping the soft look of the embossing paste would give it that sweater look.
