Embellish Color Challenge

Ever since I discovered Ashley Newell's blog, I've been admiring the gorgeous work her and her design team colleagues produce for their color challenges on the Embellish blog.  Although I love their work, the color combos are not colors I would normally combine.  This time, even though I was unsure of the palette, I decided to jump in and play along.

When I showed the card to Aldo, he surprised me by telling me that he loved the color palette I had chosen. Hmm, maybe I've been playing it a bit too safe with my color combos!  Part of the challenge was to use your stamps to create a background so I used my new Juliette stamp set from SEI to stamp the medallion print on yellow cardstock using grey ink.  The die cut flourish is from PTI's embellishment stamp set.  I added black 3mm rhinestones from Pizzaz Aplenty to the center of each medallion.  A black rhinestone flourish and velvet ribbon complete the card.
