Medallion Sun Burst

A bright sunny card today.  I'm trying to tell the weather that we don't need snow in April!!  We had snow flurries yesterday amid periods of sunshine.  It was Brrrrrr! 

This card follows the sketch over at Simply Stampin' - 

I've used Daffodil Delight as my card base with a mat of Basic Black.  I stamped the Medallion on Whisper White in More Mustard and cut it into three, then attached to the black mat.  I used the Circles Die to cut a Basic Black mat.  Then inked up my Medallion Stamp again this time with Daffodil Delight and placed a piece of  Whisper White directly onto the stamp and rubbed.  I then punched out the centre piece with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch.  I added a yellow Rhinestone Brad to the middle and attached to the black circle before attaching the the main panel. 

My border strip is basic Black with a frill of Daffodil Delight punched with the Scallop Trim Punch and attached along the bottom.  The sentiment is from For my Family.  I've been using this one a lot lately, just for the simplicity of the font and it fits great into the punches.  I stamped it in More Mustard and punched out with Modern Label Punch

Last couple of weeks of the Spring Mini Catalogue.  Be sure to place your orders before these sets disappear!

what a fab sunny card, I never really think to use this stamp as the main focus of a card, just tend to use it for backgrounds, looking at it in a new light now!
