Pam,
This is very striking. I love that button in the center of the medallion. Now I have to try that! I also love the colors you chose. Great card! Linda

SO pretty, Pam! I really like how you embossed the medallion and dressed it up with the button. (I don't think I have inked up that stamp in the set, ever...I have no idea why) THe color combo is very rich and perfect for the fall season, too. Have a great day! :)
