Curtain Call Act 55 & Mojo Monday 163

Hello, dear readers!  Welcome back for another Curtain Call Color Challenge!  Let's see what Stacey has in store for us this week, shall we?

Aren't those felt flowers just delicious?!  I paired up these colors with the Mojo Monday sketch.  Now I won't lie to you, these colors were a bit problematic for me.  The whole time I was working on this card, all I could think about was the number of times I have said to my hubby, "No, you may not wear a brown belt with black shoes."  Seriously, the black kept throwing me off, but I think I finally came up with something that works.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Real Red, Chocolate Chip), Papertrey Ink (white)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Masculine Motifs, Fillable Frames 4), Waltzingmouse (Teeny Trees)
Ink:  Colorbox (Cranberry), Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate), Ranger Distress (Spiced Marmalade), Inkadinkadoo (Black)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Fillable Frames 4 die), Fiskars (border punch)
Accessories:  Michaels (ribbon), Queen & Co. (pearls), thread

A peek at the inside:

Sorry to cut this a bit short on detail, but I've had a few too many late nights recently!

Love how you snuck in the black stitching! Once again, you've done an amazing job with challenging colors. Beautiful!

I'm with you! Brown and black are super hard to mix! And I tell my DH all the time, "NO you can't wear those black shoes with a brown belt!" Too funny!
I think you did wonderful job though and am impressed.
