Thankful Medallion

Today I'm playing along at Freshly Made Sketches.  As I pondered the sketch, it occurred to me that it reminded me a bit of a 3D embossing folder I have.  It has a center medallion with the leaves extending out to the edge, which I am using to represent the circle over the flagging strips in the sketch.  I die cut the sentiment in Watermelon Wonder and black and layered them to create a bit of depth.  A thin border of black on a Watermelon Wonder card base round out my very understated rendition of the sketch.



Happy Stamping,
Dana

  7. The offset black on the sentiment and the black layer of paper really work to highlight the yummy watermelon CS and embossed panel! Stunning card!
