Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 29

Welcome to another color challenge Sunday courtesy of Stacey's Stamping Stage blog!  Here are the colors for the week!
These colors were a bit of a challenge for me.  I know that the one color says bordering blue, but I had to go with a shade of gray instead.  I just didn't have anything with a shade of blue like that I figured it was pretty close to gray!  I also used Get Sketchy #37 for this one...such a fun sketch this week! Here is my card!
"Happy Father's Day" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Basic Grey
Stamps: Renaissance by Design (Sentimental Sayings set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: antique pewter & Chalk: charcoal)
Ribbon: Bo Bunny
Twine: Darice Inc.
Buttons/Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Pen: American Crafts
Corner Rounder: EK Success

Instructions:  Fold gray paper in half to make card base, round the bottom corners, and ink the edges.  Round the bottom corners and ink the edges of a patterned paper block.  Tie ribbon around the top, and add a button to the bow using twine.  Adhere the block to the front of the card.  Round the top corners of a white cardstock strip and adhere to the top of the card.  Adhere buttons along the seam between the ribbon and white cardstock.  Stamp the sentiment to the white cardstock.  Draw a black pen line underneath it, and accent each end with three jewels. 

Be sure to check out the fabulous designs from all the other ladies as well!  ♥♥♥
