Real Red Medallion

Stampin up real red medallion  
I'm headed off this morning for my last day at the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City.  It's been an amazing and educational ride.  However, I'm very ready to get back home and see my family (tonight)!  Been there?

FTL53 I created this 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" card before I headed to Salt Lake based on this Clean and Simple sketch challenge (FTL53).  The "simple" aspect may have been lost in all my accessories.  LOL.  TIP:  Basic Black 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon is new to the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog.

The Medallion background stamp is the #1 selling Stampin' Up! stamp right now.  Gorgeous!  Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Gray and Basic Black offer a crisp, formal look.  Simply change the sentiment for a wedding or anniversary.  Stampin' Up!'s Teeny Tiny Wishes collection of greetings makes the changeover a breeze.  TIP:  This set coordinates beautifully with the Modern Label Punch.

Since I need to scoot to convention, I won't be able to share a step by step virtual workshop today.  However, I have listed the products and product numbers used and welcome your comments at the end of this post if you have any questions!

DON'T FORGET!   Discover the latest sketch at Pals Paper Arts, our new challenge blog!  I'll be looking for your artwork!  I Love to Play at PPA!
