Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act{51}

When I saw this color combination over at the Curtain Call Color Challenge
this week, I just knew I wanted to play along.  Nothing like waiting until
the last minute....the challenge is due here soon!


I don't have these SU colors so I substituted PTI colors for this one.  They came out
pretty close I think! 


I had fun with a new embossing folder I found called Oriental Weave.
It makes such a nice deep embossing. 
I also did some sponging while my Nestie circle was in place......haven't done that
before but will certainly try it again!  What a nice effect!


I also used the 2S4Y sketch by Kazan again.....it's just so versatile!
I'm serious.....Love this sketch!

Have a wonderful weekend!
