All wrapped up with a bow...

Doesn't this card look like a present with that big bow on top? I guess that's appropriate since this is a special birthday card for a special friend! This card uses today's sketch challenge on SCS, which I haven't played in a very long time!

When I sat down to make a card for this particular friend, I thought of a few things - elegance with a slightly exotic flair; rich colors; and just a little sparkle. I pulled out the medallion stamp, inked it with rich razzleberry, and then did rock 'n roll in not quite navy. For a little texture I stamped onto naturals white cardstock. Then I stamped the medallion again in not quite navy and punched out the center with the 1 3/4" circle punch.

The right side of the card is a panel of razzleberry cardstock stamped with one of the flowers from Razzle Dazzle (in two generations). Over the join I layered not quite navy ribbon from the Elementary Ribbon Originals. The sentiment is from the birthday stamp in the Everything Nice set, punched out with the word window punch and layered on the modern label in razzleberry. I added three more flowers, which were stamped in/on NQN and cut out, and then for my bling I put rhinestone brads in the centers of the flowers and also in the medallion center.

OK, that's it for today. We're having a snow day here today - the first of the season! Thanks so much for visiting!
