Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 26

Happy Sunday everyone!  And what has been a ritual around here on Sundays now, it is time for another fabulous color challenge courtesy of Stacey's Stamping Stage Blog!  Here are the colors for this week!
Not a normal color combo for me, but I really loved putting together my card!  I didn't realize how much I actually liked gray until doing so!  Here is what I came up with:
"Enjoy Life" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (white} & Wausau (yellow) 
Paper: American Crafts
Stamps/Ribbon: Renaissance by Design (Enjoy Life set) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: sky gray, antique pewter) 
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Corner Rounder: EK Success

Instructions:  Fold yellow cardstock in half to make card base, and round the left & right opposite corners.  Round the same corners of a gray paper block, and adhere to the front.  Round the same corners of a white cardstock block, and adhere yellow ribbon around the middle.  Stamp the butterfly to the top half, and the flourishes to the bottom half.  Accent with yellow and dark gray jewels, and adhere the entire block to the left side of the card with dimensional adhesive. 

This card is also based on the current sketch at Stamping 411.  Unfortunately, I can't link my card to their blog unless I take out the link(s) in my supply list.  I don't want to change the format of my blog, so I won't be posting my card there.  But, I didn't want you to miss out on the sketch, because it is a good one!  So, enjoy!

Don't forget to check out what the other Curtain Call gals have come up with for the week!  I am sure it will be utter eye candy!  And I hope you play along as well! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea
