Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 21

Happy Sunday everyone!!  Sunday means I am bringing you another color challenge, courtesy of Stacey's Stamping Stage blog!  Here is the color combo for this week:
And here is my card using the colors!  This set of colors really made me leave my comfort zone, and I really like what I happened to come up with!  I also did this card with the current Caardvarks Photo Inspiration challenge and Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger in mind.  The photos are super fabulous...be sure to check them out! 
"The Lord Bless You..." supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Scenic Route
Stamps: Gina K Designs (Lovely Labels set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: citrine, hunter green & Chalk: yellow cadmium)
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Twine: Darice Inc.
Button: Papertrey Ink
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Glitter: DecoArt
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Embossing Folder: Distress Stripes by Provo Craft
Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression by Provo Craft
Diecut Cartridge: Home Accents by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold green cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Emboss a block of white cardstock using the Cuttlebug and Distress Stripes embossing folder, and round the bottom corners.  Ink the edges of a strip of yellow script paper and adhere to the middle.  Tie ribbon around the middle and adhere a button to the bow using twine.  Adhere the entire block to the front of the card.  Stamp the label and sentiment to white cardstock and cut out.  Accent with pearls, and adhere to the front of the card using dimensional adhesive.  Cut the butterflies and their layers at 3 1/4" from white & yellow cardstock using the Cricut Expression and Home Accents cartridge. (Be sure to press the "flip" option when cutting the butterfly with the trailing flourish.)  Cover the white layers in glitter, and adhere the yellow layers to them just slightly off center.  Adhere the butterflies to the label, and accent with pearls.  

Be sure to check out the other girls creations as well!  It will be fabulous!  And I really hope you join us for this week's color challenge! I would love to see what you come up with!  ♥ 

Until later,
~Lea

  27. Hi Lea, thanks for visiting my blog. Your comment is too kind, thanks very much. I notice with your work you seem to have a very keen eye for detail. So often I look at some cards, including my own and say "if it just had something...but what". Your cards leave me without that feeling. I absolutely love the way you used this cuttlebug folder in the background of this card! I'd have never thought to use it on such a feminine card and yet it works wonderfully! You Rock Lea! I'll be back to visit again real soon! Wonderful Job!
