Hello, Gorgeous

Hello, gorgeous! Have you played along with the current Curtain Call Wishing Well challenge? Challenge entries are due September 25 at 8 am CDT, and a randomly chosen participant will win a $25 gift certificate from our generous sponsor, Whimsy Stamps.

Here's the lovely inspiration photo:

Be sure to check out the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog today for round two of challenge inspiration.

For my card, I drew inspiration from the colors, as well as from the stones. I started by sponging a circular area of the background in green. Around that, I created a stone background texture using a stencil and some texture paste. I die-cut the word Hello using the HELLO LARGE WORD DIE by Whimsy Stamps from a leftover piece of a watercolored and spritzed background - the colors were perfect for this challenge. The word "gorgeous" is from the HAPPY HELLO stamp set by Whimsy Stamps. A thread nest, sequins, and a washi tape border along the right add the finishing touches.

Thanks for stopping by!
