Here’s another card I made for the World Card Making Day challenges on SCS last weekend. I had just received the Charming set from the Holiday Mini, and I thought it would work beautifully with the sketch from the Flourishes challenge. I was quite happy with the result!

I stamped a couple extra lines with the script background stamp to fill out the image panel a little bit more. The center of the small medallion image was inked up with a marker and punched out with a 3/4″ circle punch. I pierced a circle on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla card stock, using the Punches Plus template, and punched it out with a 1″ circle punch.

Thanks for stopping by!
