Embossed Medallion

Well it has been a while since I 'embossed' and then inked the background, and I must say I enjoyed doing it once again!  It was particularly exhilarating because of the sheer size of the stamp!  I got the inspiration for this card on another stamper's site who I must credit (please see below)...but I think I added a little bit of my own style by creating my own ribbon look. 

To do this, I layered two ribbons together, then stitched a row of beads over top.  It was a bit pain-stakingly slow but I sort of like doing little crafty things like this watching tv! 

Hope you like it :)
