Medallion Birthday

Hi there once again!  Today I have a card made using this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  It's also for the weekly color challenge at Dynamic Duos, where they are celebrating the one year anniversary of the blog.

The Dynamic Duos challenge this week is to use any of the color challenges from the last year.  Here's the one I chose:

Baja Breeze was my choice to match with Crumb Cake.  I've always loved that color combination and fortunately I have some retired Parisian Breeze designer paper I have been hoarding saving with just those colors in it.

I stamped the Crumb Cake base with the En Francais background stamp in Versamark, then added the designer paper piece across the top after punching it with the Eyelet Border punch.

The Daydream Medallion layers were stamped on Whisper White and then cut out with the matching framelits.  Layers of solid card stock were also cut with the framelits and layered underneath, an idea I borrowed from the big Stampin' Up catalogue.  The stylus from the Simply Scored board was a handy tool to roll up the edges of the stamped layers.

Three little flags cut from Parisian Breeze  line up under the flower.  The sentiment was punched out with a 1 1/4" circle punch and popped up on dimensionals.  Crumb Cake Seam Tape ribbon and a button top off the card.

So glad you visited my blog today.  Be sure to leave me a comment if you have a moment. Until next time!

I still have some of that Parisian Breeze paper too! And now that Baja Breeze is going away I'll probably hoard it even longer! I've always loved how it looks with Crumb Cake and this pretty card makes all these colors look wonderful together! I love the look of your layered flower! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
