Curtain Call Challenge - Anything Goes

Over at the Curtain Call Challenge they are celebrating their 1st Anniversary with a wonderful inspiration photo and theme of 'Anything Goes'. They also have a HUGE array of sponsors for this challenge which is extremely exciting!!!

I've already designed one card for this challenge but couldn't help myself by going to look at the photo on the website it came from. I was trying to work out if the tin on the shelf (bottom right) is gold?? as it seems quite shiny. I was also just loving all of the white in the room and if you have seen my other cards of late, then you'll know I love a lot of white space on my cards!

Yes....I'm still playing around with my new Pretty Pink Posh die...I just can't put it down!! I die cut the word 'sweet' first across the front of the card and then die-cut the windows. I then placed all the white cardstock back with glue (I placed a small piece of cardstock on the back for everything to adhere too). 

I was going to inlay the gold die-cut 'sweet' but I took a quick photo and it just didn't look right. So I cut 4 'sweet's' from white cardstock and glued them all together and into the slot on the card. I then slightly off-set the gold 'sweet'. I attached 3 small gold metal hearts and voila..finished!

I'm so, so happy with how it turned out and only lost one piece of cardstock amongst all the tiny pieces. And also managed to keep it unmarked too (because I'm usually such a grub...)!

The 'sweet' metal die is from The Crafters Workshop and the gold hearts from The Warehouse.

I'm going to link this also to the challenge at Moxie Fab where their theme is 'word die cuts'. This is my second entry.

And also to the challenge at Virginia's View # 5 where their theme is 'Die Cutting'. This feels like my millionth entry but think its my 4th.

Off to jump in bed with Phoebe and watch Modern Family on DVD. We both love that show and Season 5 is starting next week. So good to have a show we can both enjoy thats a little more adult (not that I didn't enjoy The Wiggles, Strawberry Shortcake etc....) its just nice to see her understanding more about life and relationships. And having me there beside her so she can ask me any question in the world.....and boy does she have some questions!!!!

Take care
