Medallion card.

I made this card for a sketch contest at the Kaisercraft blog. I didn't win the contest, but I like how my card turned out anyhow!

The directions were to use at least 80% Kaisercraft product for the card. I used papers and stamps from the Kaisercraft Pennyroyal range, rhinestones, a pearl and ribbon. The cardstock is Bazzil and the ink used is Colorbox. The three layers of the medallion are all stamped and so is the base image, which is a journalling block with nice decorative edges.



You can check out the winning card and honorable mentions HERE. Kaisercraft are also thinking of hosting a weekly card challenge, which might be handy as I have quite a lot of their papers and love their rhinestones and pearls!

Thanks for stopping by and continuing to leave comments, I appreciate them all! {Big Hugs}
