... it seems that a touch of red is popular this week, the Play Date Cafe - PDCC97 have gone for black, white and splash of red.
I've gone for a really simple, but rather striking design. My base card is white with a textured linen finish. I inked up the Medallion stamp in Versafine Onyx Black and, using my stamp-a-ma-jig for positioning, stamped in the centre of the square card. The image was heat embossed with clear powder which intensifies the colour and gives a lovely shine - and also brings out the texture. The splash of red was achieved by adding some gems - a large central gem and some smaller ones around the medallion. Simple, quick, elegant! I've decided to skip a sentiment and let the image stand on its own.

I'd like to say Hi and Welcome to my latest Blog Friend - Toponne - great to have you aboard!!
It's a bit grey again today - maybe the last couple of days have been it - the end of summer!! According to the weather statistics, August was the coldest for 18 years - I can certainly vouch for that! But it's also been the sunniest since 2006 - go figure!!
Just checked out the Less is More 31 challenge and Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - both look fab!
