DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge - Feb, 2016

     Today, I have a card for the Stack-a-holic challenge over at DCWV. I used the Happy Day Stack to create my card. I love the soft colors with the grey in this collection. Grey is a trend I'm seeing everywhere these days. That, and little bits of gold here and there on projects like I have on this card.
     My sentiment is from the Card Crafting Hello collection (2011139) from the Paper Studio. This is one of my very favorite stamps.  I used the Picot Edge Circles (S4-345) dies from Spellbinders to add some dimension to my medallion. I attached the medallion with foam tape. It made so much difference to pop it up rather than adhering it flat against the card.
     You still have oodles of time if you want to create something for this challenge. Here's a link to the rules and a copy of the sketch we have to work with this month.
     Thanks so much for stopping in. Hope you have a wonderful day. May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands, Pamela
