Rainbow Medallions #2

I came up with another card for the PTI MIM challenge.  This time I used an image from Quilled Elegance & 4 PTI inks: Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shores, Summer Sunrise & Limeade Ice.  I sponged on a bit of the ink & added a tiny pearl to each image.  The center is die cut & the panel is popped up over a circle card with the sentiment from Lovely Layers stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.
This year our Gravenstein apple tree is loaded!  I've already given a sack full to my neighbor.  It's a lot of work to core, peel & slice them, but I did manage to get an apple crisp made--one of hubby's favorite desserts.  I love using the antique bowls that were my grandmother's.  Thanks for stopping by my blog--I always appreciate your visit.

  1. Greta, this is seriously gorgeous! Love the added sponged on colour. Quilled Elegance has been on my wishlist for a long time - I think it just moved up a couple of notches. Apple crisp is my favourite homemade dessert and now I'm hungry.

  8. I absolutely love the colors you chose for your extra card (circle) Just looks so easy I'm going to try it tonite. Dont have those colors, but I have very close seconds. T Y for sharing, and T Y for being a nurse.

  9. Stunning, Great!! Really stunning, both of them! Mister's favorite apples in the world (and he eats a lot of them!) are Gravensteins and we only have them in the market here for about a three-week period out of the whole year! He just loves the flavor eating them out-of-hand, but I think they are the best cooking apple and I'm with your mister ... apple crisp is my favorite dessert, too! Now I have to hate you a little bit for posting that yummy-looking photo!! Hugs, Darnell

  10. This one is gorgeous! But that apple crisp look even better - we don't get anything here - my apples are eaten by the racoons and my peaches are eaten by the squirrels.....

  14. Lovely card. I really like the circle shaped card with the the stamping. The Quilted Elegance stamp set looks great using this technique and the little pearls really give it a delicate look. Really great card.

  16. Hello Greta,
    This is a gorgeous circle card, not only is the design unique but the colour palette is very friendly and joyful, a card that puts a smile on your face.

  25. Squeal! A second stunning x awesome vibrant medallion card and a photo of one of my favourite desserts! I'm already 'tasting' how delicious this apple crisp is! I don't bake it at home, because it's a 'specialty' my mom makes when I visit (that, and blueberry or rhubarb crisp). It's a 'mom made for me' treat - and that makes it all the more special. A dollop of ice cream and I am one ultra happy daughter! I'll be yours is as fantastic as my mom's; what a gem you are for spoiling your husband with this! Lucky guy indeed!
    Hugs~c
