CAS Cards - Medallion

I had this idea in my head when I was trying to sleep the other night, so I knew I had to get it down on paper as soon as I could.  That doesn't happen to me often, but I'm glad it did as I really like how this card turned out.  NB:  This is such a simple design that it's possible it's been done before.  I didn't consciously CASE anyone's card, but who knows where these subconscious ideas come from late at night!

There are two versions of this card and that's because I made a mistake by stamping Medallion full strength the first time I stamped it.  So I turned the cardstock over and stamped again without re-inking.  Ahhh - much softer!  All went well until I placed the stamped layer onto the Whisper White card base.  Uh oh!  The mistake clearly showed through when placed onto WW.  What to do...

Well firstly, I started all over again and got this version:

Then I layered the first attempt onto a Sahara Sand card base and got this:

Two easy cards!
