Razzle Medallion

I posted a challenge on the UDI blog to create a Welcome/Just Because/etc type card. The purpose was to then send them to our Welcome Coordinator to send out to new members to the group. Well, you can't post a challenge and then not take part in it!

So, below is the card I did and mailed off. I didn't put a sentiment on it - didn't have one that I really liked. I figured it could be sent as is or the coordinator could stamp one.

Things to note:
-- I used the brayer to ink up the Medallion stamp (makes for even coverage)
-- Circle Rhinestone brad was placed in the center of the Medallion

I'm really glad that I got the new In Colors this year. I've always been hesitant in getting them because they would retire. In fact, it's been a few yeas since I last purchased them. However, this year decided that I would get them all. So, glad that I did!! I have been loving them and using them like crazy!!

Stamps: Medallion Stamp (pg.133)
CS: Rich Razzleberry (pg.155), WW (pg.155)
Ink: Rich Razzleberry (pg.155)
Other: Rich Razzleberry Polka Dotted Ribbon (pg.182), Circle Fire Rhinestone Brads (pg.179), Brayer (pg.192), 1/16" Circle Punch (pg.186)

Thanks for stopping by!! I have a yard sale tomorrow, so need to head to bed. I'm selling TONS of retired stamp sets - hope they sell!! If they don't - I'll be posting them here. :)

Stampin' Hugs,
