Medallion Thanks!

Hello everyone!  How are you?  Today has been a busy day but I did find the time to squeeze in a card and boy did I have fun with it!


I based the colors for this card on WPlus9's color challenge this month! LOVE these colors!  I remember when I was younger I had a gray and pink sweatsuit that I just loved to wear!  Using these colors today brought back those warm & happy memories!
I also used a sketch for this card too because you know how much I love those! :)  This one was from Get Sketchy and it was a fun one to work with! 



I just adore these doily stamps from WPlus9 called Mehndi Medallions!  They are so pretty!


For the lace, I stamped the lacey border image on black cardstock in VersaMark, embossed it in white and then cut it out.  Yes, I did say I CUT it out!!  You can pick your jaw up off the floor now! LOL!!  I didn't even pass out from doing it! But, doesn't it look like real lace?  Love it!


Fun, fun colors and a fun, fun sketch!  Thank you for taking a peak today!  I hope you have a great day!
