  • Stampin up video tutorial medallion punch video tutorial You have heard this from me before.  Inspiration is everywhere and fashion catalogs can be a playground of color, texture and pattern ideas.  It's pretty obvious what stirred my creative juices, oui?
  • A snippet of Basic Black 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon adds a little "flair" to the sentiment.
  • More Mustard Textured Card Stock (Regals Textured Card Stock) provides a rich finish.  I used it below the Basic Black scallop trim and for the "stripe."
