The Curtain Call - Totally Tassel

Earning the Lead in the last Curtain Call challenge?  Wow.  It just never stops being a day-maker for me! 

This week's photo for Curtain Call - Totally Tassel has made me reach in my supplies for a never-before-inked stamp from Winnie & Walter's The Party!:



I also added another little stamping from my newly gifted Bold Blooms set from Ellen's Essentials by Julie E. for the perfect sentiment!  It looks quite party-ready, I believe, after a tiny sprinkling of bling:



I've used two of the Stitched Circle dies from SSS to impress the circles on the card front ... this is a very scary kinda-new-to-me technique, but I love the results - and this is nearly a one-layered card, but for those darling little totally tasseled lanterns!

It has now become my quest in life to make you sing a little each day ... hope this tune puts your hands together as you sing it loud and clear!!

=]  Thanks for the visit!
