I've used my lovely Medallion stamp for this card and the fab new in colour Lucky Limeade. The ribbon is Old Olive as I didn't have any Limeade, but I'm happy to put any greens together - if it's good enough for Mother Nature, it's good enough for me! It also serves as a useful colour comparison for anyone who thought Lucky Limeade was similar to Old Olive - it really is quite different. You can see how I've 'stamped off' to create variations in the shade of Lucky Limeade - I love making layered backgrounds using this technique.
The tag shape is from Welcome Christmas and is so useful for sentiments. I used the Merry Christmas from Season of Joy and stamped the swirl from the same set which never seems to leave my hands at the moment! I'm a big fan of the Medallion too. It's a huge image and as well as being great for stamping layered backgrounds as I did on my card today, it makes a great contemporary card on its own, is brilliant for stamping wrapping paper and gift bags like this one I made a while ago...
... and popped up gift tags like this one...
Altogether a very useful addition to the craftroom!
