Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 28 (Better late....

....than never.)  Sorry I am so late getting this posted.  I caught a nasty head cold that reared its ugly head on our last night of vacation, and it has since turned into a bronchial problem.  Today is the first day that I have had at least a little bit of energy to get some things done.  So, I finally had a chance to sit at my desk and get my card done.  Without further ado, here are the colors for this week's challenge, courtesy of Stacey's Stamping Stage blog.
This is what I came up with.  This stamp is from one of the latest PTI releases..."For The Graduate".  And while this could be a graduation card, the sentiment could be used for so many other things.  Congratulations for pretty much anything, encouragement, birthday....I like that it is so versatile! I also used sketch 88 from the Clean & Simple Stamping blog on this one...LOVE this sketch.  It screamed "Lea"....tee hee!
"Wishing You..." supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: GCD Studios
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (For the Graduate set) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: midnight) 
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Twine: Darice Inc. 
Button: Doodlebug Designs
Jewels: Glitz Designs
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Embossing Border Folder: Pop Culture set by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold kraft dotted paper in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a floral strip and adhere to the bottom of the card.  Emboss a diamond border to the bottom of a white cardstock strip, and round the tip corners.  Stamp the sentiment above the embossed border, and adhere the white cardstock block to the front of the card.  Tie ribbon around the seam, and adhere a button to the bow with twine.  Accent the sentiment with red square jewels.   

Be sure to check out all the other lovely ladies' cards....it will be a little bit of delight in your day! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea

PS- want to hear something crazy?!  Casey graduates in less than 30 days.  I can't believe how quickly this year has flown by already.  Holy wow.  :)
