Paper and Ink Sketches #23

Paper and Ink Sketches #23: Showcasing Eastern Beauty and Eastern Medallions Thinlits

I created this card specifically for the Paper and Ink Sketches #23 challenge that my Stampin' Up! upline, Angie from Chic'n Scratch, hosts. It uses the Eastern Beauty photopolymer stamp set as well as the Eastern Medallions Thinlits which come bundled so you can save a full 10%, as well as the  Eastern Palace DSP.  

I used a touch of silver help the bow stand out a bit. The Eastern Palace DSP set comes with gold accents but I decided to change it up a bit with the silver. 

I used the largest Medallion in the thinlits set for my sentiment and then placed it face down on the back of a piece of Silver Glimmer paper and traced around it. Then I fussy cut the glimmer element so it would layer behind the medallion.  As per usual, I used glue dots to attach the sentiment to the glimmer paper so it would hold nicely.

If you would like to play along, download the sketch below.
