Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 24

Sorry I am so late posting the color challenge, courtesy of Stacey's Stamping Stage Blog!  We were out of town all weekend, and I didn't bring the image with me so I could post it.  And then today just completely got away from me.... I'm only human, and I imagine you all feel me on that! Tee hee!  So, without further are the colors for this week:
What I am loving about being part of this challenge is that I am using colors that I would normally not think to put together!  I also used some of my new Lawn Fawn stamps!!  Just got them in the mail and couldn't WAIT to break into them!  They are SO SO cute, and they stamp wonderfully!  Check out the Lawn Fawn Blog, and a link to the stamp set will be in my supply list!  I also used FTL 84 from the Clean & Simple Stamping blog for this one...such a fab sketch!  And last, but not least...I did this with the Moxie Fab "Picking Up The Pieces" challenge in mind.  I hope to get another card with more elaborate paper piecing done, but if not...I still got the challenge done! 
 "You're Sew Lovely" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: GCD Studios (Melody Ross Ava Collection) 
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Sew Lovely set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: black, tourquoise) 
Felt/Metal Die: Papertrey Ink
Ribbon: Renaissance By Design
Twine: Darice Inc. 
Button: Doodlebug Designs
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Embossing tool: Scor-Pal

Instructions:  Fold kraft cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a yellow medallion paper strip and adhere to the bottom of the the card.  Round the top corners of a white cardstock block, and stamp the dress form and sentiment to it.  Emboss lines to it making diamond shapes using the Scor-Pal tool.  Adhere the block to the top of the card.  Cut the felt scallop strip using the Cuttlebug and medium scallop die.  Adhere along the seam, and tie a ribbon around it.  Attach a button to the bow using twine.  Stamp the dress form to patterned paper, and cut out just the dress portion.  Paper piece over the existing stamped image on the white cardstock, and then accent with yellow pearls. 

Once again...don't forget to check out the rest of the gals!  It is sure to be "sew lovely"!  Tee hee! ♥♥♥
