Some embossing...

I've got a quick card to show you that I am ├╝ber proud of!  Is that properly used German?  Oh, well.  Even if not, I really am happy about this card!  I think it looks fabulous!

But before I show you, can I please ask all of you a favor?  Would you please try to spell my name correctly when you use it online?  I've seen so many variations...it's a bit distressing!  I blame my parents.  How was a poor innocent infant supposed to defend herself against a horrendously long and hard to spell name like Mynnette?!  Thanks for listening.  Now the card...

Here it is~

Details~



For these fabulous challenges~

 



So, I was inspired by a photo on Susan's "Pure Inspiration" Pinterest board found HERE.  Isn't that packaging beautiful?!  Okay, if you didn't click on the link to go see it, go now.  I'll wait.  Still waiting.  Did you do it yet?  ;)

I embossed the medallion stamp to mimic the doily and then just added a sentiment and some bling.  Ta da!  Isn't it fabulous?!  Sorry to toot my own horn, but it seriously came out better than I'd hoped!

Thanks for stopping by and saying hi and looking at my card.  I appreciate each and every one of you who takes time to visit me!  Come and join these fabulous challenges, won't you?  Happy stamping!!! :)
