Cheery Lynn Designs Corner Medallion

I just love the color combination of white, yellow and black; it is so clean and fresh.  For my Cheery Lynn Designs card today, I was inspired by one of the winning entries from last week's Tickled Pink challenge.  Holly created a very elegant card by putting four corner dies together in the center of her card.  That made me get out all my corner dies and look at the possibilities.  Using one of the dies from the Lace Corner Deco I set, I created this lovely medallion as a backdrop for my flower.  I used my Silver Circle Little Stackers to cut the black circle for mounting the corner pieces.  For some interest, I added texture to the top yellow panel and the next black panel using my Large Circle Piercing Plate.  

For my flower, I used 2 large, 2 medium and 1 small flower from my Dairy Strip.  Normally, I curve my daisy petals under, but this time, I simply dragged my fingernail across the top of the petal - from the center to the tip - and it created a lovely upward bend.  Finished size is 5" square. 

Be sure to visit the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge blog for more inspiration and to join in on this week's Add a Flourish challenge for a chance to win $20 to the store.

This is strikingly pretty, Sandy! That's a lot of piercing you had to do on your yellow panel but it looks sooooo good behind the pretty die and flower. Hugs, Lesley
