DCWV November Card Sketch Challenge

     Update: November 30, 2012 - Just found out that DCWV chose this card as one of their TOP-10 cards for November!

     Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you are having a great day.
     It's time for another Card Sketch Challenge at DCWV. You can see the inspiration sketch as well as the blog address below. Here's my take on the challenge.
     I used DCWV's The Heirloom Stack to create my card. As you can see from the sketch, I turned it on its side. First, I trimmed and matted a darker, multicolored panel with a golden, wheat-colored paper to cover the entire front of a plain, white 7x5 card. Then, I picked five coordinating papers from the stack to make the pleated medallions.
     Each medallion began as a 3/4" x 12" strip of paper. I scored each piece every 1/4" and folded it using accordion fold. I punched medium hearts from the same papers using Fiskars' That's Amore punch. I added a sentiment from Fiskars' Friends Forever Quotes and added a flourish from Spellbinders' Parisian Accents.
     I had lots of fun making this card. You should definitely give medallions a try. There is still plenty of time to get your card in if you are so inclined. Check out the details here:

I didn't get a chance to tell you how lovely your card is, at least I don't think I did! I love your medallions. The colors are great! I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving and Black Friday shopping with your honey home! Hugz!
