Inkspirations Colour Challenge #20 and JAI #11

Hello! Today I have made a Mothers' Day card using Makeesha's colour combo. It is also the very first time I have inked up my NEW Medallion stamp, and Vintage Vogue set. They are just delicious to work with, so many possibilities! I just love that these colours lend themselves to that vintage feel too. I have taken inspiration quite literally from makeeshas card, and reproduced her ruffled ribbon. I have been wanting to have a go at this technique for ages, as I really like mixing up textures on my cards, and this ribbon hit the spot :) I have also entered JAI's 'Anything Goes' challenge!

And a close up of the interesting bit :)

Makeeshas fabulous colours...

Oops - sorry about the above! Can't tolerate spelling mistakes from myself, and couldn't edit my gushing comment!! I am a huge fan of the Medallion stamp, and these colours, and I love your challenge entry, Lee. My favourite part of the card (apart from the obvious, large, gorgeous, stamp used) is the curled paper edge. It looks great, and is the perfect showcase for your divinely-ruffled ribbon!

I love the layout of your card. I really like the ruffled edges of the paper with the beautiful blue ribbon and the colours really make the vintage vogue flowers stand out. A really stunning card.
