A sad goodbye - The Curtain Call Finale


I have played cards with the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge more than thirty times since I began my blogging journey.  Their inspirational photos quickly became some of my favorites - to say I'll miss this challenge is an understatement.

Cheers to Stacey Schafer, and all of the designers who have encouraged us to try, left some of the sweetest comments, and created so many gorgeous cards to fuel our creative juices!

You will be missed, I wish I'd played along more ... here is my final card for Curtain Call - Pines  - all the sentiments are on the inside:

What a beautiful send off card you've created Michele. The texture in the background with that embossing folder works perfectly with the your pine sprigs and pinecone. I also really like the curved card base. Wonderful work! :)

So sad to see a good challenge go but you've said a fabulous good bye, Michele. I haven't even used that ef this year I don't think. I love that little berry spray. Where does it come from? I have my card made and I'm using one of your little pine cones. I'm so glad you shared them.
