Today's set is Medallion Motif and I put a Christmas Spin on my creation for you using Flourishes Christmas Spirit Challenge 17 found HERE. This is where I fell off the wagon as my DH would say. I have white and lots of it. BUT.... it looks beautiful don't you think? I first stamped out the medallion on two sheets of paper and embossed them both. I cut one of the medallions out and when I cut it out I skipped every other spindle (is that what they are called?) anyways once that was cut out I popped it up on dimensionals to the one on my base layer.
Here is a view of the layers from the side. I added some kaiser red pearls to each of the top layers. The Christmas sentiment is from Christmas Music that is popped up on dimensionals. Tied it all off with a red sheer line edge ribbon bow. Now tell me the white doesn't look awesome! The gold layer of paper is from a sheet that I have had in my stash for ages and thought what better time to use it.
