The Challenge #71

Well hello there!  So happy you stopped by today!  We have an awesome new sketch for you try over at The Challenge this week.








When I saw the large circle of the sketch the first thing I thought of was the circle medallion from Concord & 9th's Crazy Awesome stamp set.  I started my card by selecting my patterned papers, they're from Stampin Up's English Garden collection, and I based my color choices for the medallion on the colors of the paper.  I stamped the medallion using Hero Arts Navy Shadow ink, and the word "awesome" using Wplus9 Gala Red.  I stamped the things on either side of the word "awesome" (what ARE those things called, I have no idea lol!?) using Scattered Straw distress ink.  I colored the word "crazy" and the circle around the medallion using a Copic marker.  I fussy cut the medallion and used some foam tape to attach it to my card. 

I hope you'll play along with us at The Challenge this week.  Be sure to stop by Lesley's blog to see the awesome cards the rest of the DT and our guests have created!
