Color Throwdown & Paper Craft Crew: Grateful

Good morning! Well, nothing new and/or exciting has happened since my post at 11:30 last night *lol*, so I'll get right to the challenges! I wanted to play along with the Color Throwdown and Paper Craft Crew:

Hmm.... I thought about these challenges long and hard and I just knew they could be combined in a beautiful (coherent) fashion :) Here's how my card ended up:

I am smitten! I just received the delicate doilies in my last order (a rather large one placed during Stampin' Up's "free shipping" promotion) and I was glad to put them to use here. I love the mixed textures of the cross-hatch & fancy fan embossing folders and the pop of yellow in the bitty butterfly makes my day, better seen here:

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to pop in tomorrow for a new KCRR challenge! :)

Supplies used:
Stamps: Pursuit of Happiness, Memorable Moments
