Colourful medallion = stress

{be sure to check out my giveaway!}

Happy Monday all!  Hope you had a fabulous (long for my US friends) weekend.  Ok, so, sometimes I cause myself undue stress.  This is one of those times.  Why?  Not sure.  Giving myself a challenge I guess (silly me), going outside my comfort zone (I hear it's supposed to good for me, ppffftt!). When I first saw the Championing Award Medallions Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, I avoided it because I find them difficult (mega fine scale scoring & folding, they tear and take a ton of adhesive to stay together).  I changed my mind when my fab friend Cheiron made them look so easy (not once but twice). Then, I decided to play along with my fab friend Julie's colour challenge over at Ellen Hutson's CLASSroom (Happy Anniversary Ellen! Congrats Julie on your new gig!).  Julie sucked me in with her beautiful sample but the combination includes pink AND turquoise (two of my colour nemeses... insert colourful curse words here). Then, I decided to layer the medallions, WHAT?... sigh, I have officially gone crazy.  So here's what I came up with... (my apologies for all of the babbling and whining... yes, I'll take some cheese with that)...

So I'm ok with this card.  Overlooking the little flaws....
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  I start my new job on Wednesday so my creative volume/blog posts will be decreasing... :(.  Will do my best to still do a couple posts a week.
