Curtain Call (Part I)

                                                              
Hello everyone.... I was on a roll this past weekend making several cards using the Curtain Call collection papers from Graphic 45.  This series has been discontinued, so I consider myself very fortunate I was able to find so many papers.  I admire Gloris Stengel's paper designs very much, so I was inspired by her.  I have a long way to go before reaching her level, but all in all I think these cards came out nicely. 

                                         The inside of each card was also decorated                                        

I call these first four cards Part I because I plan to later make more.  There is so much to do with this collection!  I focused on the Harlem Renaissance jazz musicians and dancing for these cards, but the Silent Screen is also represented, so I will later be adding this element to my cards. 

I just love the style and flair of this image, and it makes me feel like dancing LOL!
                                          
                                           
I love Paris and everything French, so this is my personal favorite. The die cut of the Eiffel Tower is from La-La Crafts, and it works great, as the image easily pops out.
                                                                   

The great Satchmo
 
                                         
I hope you like these cards and I always welcome hearing your feedback.

With Easter just around the corner, now I have to get busy making Easter themed cards (as I'm sure most of you are doing).
