Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 25

This Sunday brings you a really citrusy color challenge, courtesy of Stacey's Stamping Stage Blog!!  These colors are absolutely fun...and I went with the bright tones of them!  First off, here are the colors:
Pretty fun colors, huh?  I went with a more clean and simple approach this time around, and also used Get Sketchy #33 for it!  Love the fun circles...especially when it means I can break out my Dot Spot stamp set!!  ♥  I would normally use a smooth cardstock when stamping with this set, but I decided to try out a textured cardstock.  And for this card...I am loving the imperfect stamping!  I wouldn't like it on every card, but I think it works here! 
"Celebrate Today & Every Day" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Dot Spot & Year of the Flower: Daffodil
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: razzberry, orange, canary, black) 
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs

Instructions:  Fold lime green cardstock in half to make cardbase.  Stamp the dots and sentiment to a white cardstock block.  Adhere to the front of the card, and accent the middle of the dots with a matching colored jewel.  Pretty quick and easy...huh?  :) 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the fabulous cards for this week!!  They are sure to be awesome! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea
