Happy Firday... with Warmest Wishes!

Hi stampers and bloggers! Here is a card I made Wednesday night and I want to share with you... :) This card layout was inspired by Laura at Scrapnextras. Check out her blog as it's just FABALICIOUS!! I wish I had a different plum paper color closer to the DP's plum tones, but it turned out pretty good. :)

I used my new Martha Stewart ZigZag border punch and SU! Baroque Motifs to create a medallion effect. I inked my stamp with SU! markers, clear embossed, and used dimensionals to give some 3-D dimension. I added a rhinestone brad to the center. I figured a soft organdy ribbon would be nice to make it a bit more elegant. I used my SU! Word Window Punch for the "Warmest Wishes" saying. You can click on the photos to get a closer look!!
Here is a close up photo of the center image. I hope you enjoy!!! Have a super great Friday coming up as I'm posting this late on Thursday night. Chat more again soon... thanks for the visit!!!!!
