When you start with beautiful paper....

if it really hard to NOT make a beautiful card! Okay, you probably are thinking ... enough of this paper already! But no, I just had to use it again! This Heather Bailey paper is beautiful, and I wanted to make a simple card focusing on the pattern and colors. I also was searching in blogland last week and found this paper medallion tutorial on Spotted Canary and fell in love! So easy and make and wow, what a striking addition to any gift!

I kept the card very simply, allowing the paper to show through. I used this wonderful SU! sentiment as a focal point.

Isn't this medallion fun? You really must try making one. It is very very simple and is striking when complete! The box is a simple origami box, that I banded with paper and ribbon. This will make a beautiful gift set!

So it is Thursday...these weeks are flying by! Hard to believe next week is July already..and we just keep getting rain here! Thanks for stopping by! I love posting my little projects and really appreciate every comment! I hope I inspire you a bit to do something creative and have fun!
