Just Saying Hello

I made this card for the CAS online card class. This is an inspiration from Kristina Werner's card from Day 6 of the class. I liked her design but did not want to use the same flower as she did. I to use a different flower and after searching long and hard for a flower for the center, I decided to use a medallion. I tied embroidery floss around the card and to me the floss looks like the stem of the flower and the bow the leaves.
The cut out scallop circle was cut out with a spellbinders nestabilities scallop circle die. I stamped the Antique Background CG120 on the front with tea dye distress ink and drew faux stitching lines around the scallop edge. This was very easy to make and did not take a long time. I am liking the CAS cards more and more and this style seems to be growing on me.

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate the comments.

This is a lovely card Sue, I hope you do not change your style too much towards CAS, this Technique is great for a change, but you make wonderful layered cards and I don't want you to cease making them.

Love that you used a medallion for the inside, Sue! I'm not keeping up very well, but the classes are fabulous anyway.

Beautifully done Sue! I really like the idea of the medallion! I haven't done this card for the class yet, also trying to come up with an idea to replace the flower she made!
