in order to get this card completed i really had to search through my stuff to find something close to sahara sand (note to self: buy some sahara sand cardstock!). finally i found one last scrap of pti soft stone cardstock. soft stone is lighter than sahara sand, but still works fine and shows up nicely against the white, i think. i used the craft's meow set simply delightful. the medallion was die cut using spellbinders plain circle dies and then matted with a second plain circle cut from soft stone. the flags were cut with my well loved and well used my favorite things fishtail flag stax dies. the background was embossed using the stampin up! fancy fans embossing folder. the little glitter dots up in the corner were originally white, but i custom colored them using a dark red copic marker.
thanks for stopping by.
