Sweet Stamps Medallion

Today our Sweet Stamps challenge is to use one of the fabulous Medallion Stamps. Check out the selection at the Sweet Stamps Store.

For my card today I used the Five Sided Medallion (430J). I stamped it with white Dye ink onto Heavy weight vellum and embossed it with pearl embossing powder. I colored in part of the medallion with a Clear Spica Pen and did the outline border with a Silver Spica Pen. I placed my focal image unto black cs cut with a Cheery Lynn French Scalloped die (ST010) and layered that unto a white Cheery Lynn French Flair die that I had dry embossed with the 5 X 5 polka dot embossing folder.
For the inside of my card I used white cs (so you can easily write on it) cut with the Cheery Lynn French Flair die.
I also stamped the sentiment New Life 
Thanks for stopping by today and check out our blog to see what the other fabulous designers have created!
