Shabby Chic

By | September 4, 2009

I'm really happy with the way this card came out.  I tried using the Medallion background stamp before and I wasn't too happy with the results.  Then one of my readers (Thanks Jeanealogist!) recommended I emboss it.  I tried it and I like.   Tell me what you think of my card.

    I love the embossed medallion. My stamp is on the way and I want to try this card when it comes. thanks for sharing a great card, love the colours also, I haven’t used the Bermuda Bay much and this is a perfect combo.
