Medallion x 2

Hi stampers!  I had so much fun making my flower medallion the other day that I decided to make another one! This time for the Colour Q Challenge number 96!  I really loved the color combo again this week and of course the inspiration picture!

I WANT that comforter!!!  Isn't it a pretty combo?  I struggled yet again this week though to come up with something.  So, I thought I'd try out the medallion in another color combo but this time I'd go less vintage and more clean and simple.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Happy Greetings
Paper:  Whisper white, tempting turquoise, basic gray, lucky limeade, subtles DSP stack
Ink:  Bashful blue, tempting turquoise, basic gray, lucky limeade (markers)
Accessories:  Polka dot embossing folder, lucky limeade ruffled ribbon, polka dot brads, punches - decorative label, large and small scallop, blossom triple layer

I haven't used many of my summer mini sets lately so I wanted to dig out Happy Greetings for this card!!  We all know I'm a sucker for words!  I liked the way this bold font went with my bold medallion.  It also worked perfectly with the four colors on this card since there were four parts to that greeting.  And I told you I have LOTS of polka dot brads in all the colors except for coral so I just had to use one here!  Making the medallion is easy, just punch out all the parts and crumple them up.  Then just pop a brad through the center!  I thought about adding some pearls or something but I stopped because sometimes less is more!!!

I love this card but it wasn't where I thought I was going in the beginning when I saw this card so I may try again with the combo...I want to try to use the BFF set with it...funny how a set that I wasn't excited about getting for free has becoming a fave....figures, right? :-)

Anyway that's all I got for now, I need to go running although I'd rather be stamping.....so happy running or stamping...whichever you decide to do, lol!
