Curtain Call Color Challenge: {ACT 49}

Today I am playing along with the Curtain Call Color Challenge: ACT {49}. 
Here are the fabulous color scheme for this week.


I did have to substitute some "other" similar colors for the tan colors.
I kind of went back to my roots so to speak.  I went with a technique I learned when
I first started stamping:  Chalk popping.  (At least that's what I was taught it was called!)
The centers of my flowers look a bit green but I used some tan
shimmery chalk for the centers....I promise!

For this I also had to do a little masking and I really like how this turned out.
What do you think?  I so wanted to add some pearls or something but I am
leaving it "off" so to speak.  :)


Have a great day!
