Hello Lovely




To be honest I think I over did it on this card by adding too many elements, but I'm still going to give it to someone.  If I made it again I'd simplify.

I wanted to play around with my washi tape so I created the little panel to look a bit like patterned cardstock.  It's just the same design in 2 different colors.  The panel is popped up for a bit of dimension.

The medallion stamp is from Papertrey Ink's Mehndi Medallion Mini set.  The detail it has is really breathtaking.  I added a bunch of Irock gems to various spots in the medallion.  It adds lots of sparkle.

The ribbon is from Papertrey ink.  I put it around the card base, and then again around the popped up washi panel in the same spot to give the look of a clean line even though with the layering it's obvious the ribbon is not all one piece.

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Happy for You set.  I just love the font and thought it went well with the elegant medallion.

A few more I rock gems in the bottom left and I was all done.

There's my little creation for today.  I think this sentiment is a good just because card for a friend.  It's nice to say something a little different once in awhile instead of always using the same phrases.
