Christmas Card Stamping 411 Challenge 214

Here is one of my cards for Stamping 411 challenge 214. I'm not sure I like how it turned out, it was a little different in my mind but it's allright. I used the medallion from Artistic Etchings for the background, Greeting Card Kids was used for the main image panel, and Contempo Christmas provides the sentiment. The measurements are as follows:
  1. Layer One – Card Base cut at 5.5 x 8.5, scored and folded
  2. Layer Two – 4 x 5.25”
  3. Layer Three – Die Cut Scallop circle #2 the larger one
  4. Layer Four – 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch
  5. Layer Five – Scallop Oval Punch
I used glossy white card stock on this one. Very easy to color in the little girl and the color of the stamped images are much more intense. Some of the details easily missed in the picture are the paper piercing around the green scallops, the basic rhinestones on the medallion to the right of the image and the rhinestone brad in red around the ribbon.
Let me know what you think of this one. and thanks for stopping by At Paula's Place.

I love the way you did the focal image with a circle instead of a square shape. The stamp is super cute too!
I'm also getting an early start on my christmas cards so thanks for the inspiration!
