Freshly Made Sketches #44

  Wow - 2 cards in 2 days.  It's been a while for that. 

 But my parents are home.  I didn't want to carry their anniversary and birthday cards all the way to Europe and back so I decided to make the cards when I got home.  Life was a bit crazy there at the end of June.  So, for my Dad's 80th birthday card, I decided to use this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

So I pulled out more of my new stamps and decided to play along.

The stamp sets I used were Daydream Medallions, Blue Ribbon, and Memorable Moments.

I stamped and paper pieced together the award medallion

I popped up the centre on dimensionals.

My colour palette was Island Indigo, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.

Here's a few more views.

I have that Daydreams Medallions set but haven't played with it yet. Now I'm inspired!
