Thank You Marigolds

Hello Everyone!!  Today I was playing around with some JustRite Papercraft stamps and this is the finished result!  I never seem to have any thank you cards, so I thought I'd make this for my stash!  :)

It's a nice easy card to make and I've actually used three different stamp sets - didn't plan it that way, it's just the way my day rolled!  :)  I began with a base of Old Olive and layered with Very Vanilla and topped with a piece of white that has been stamped with Autumn Damask Background Stamp in Memento Cantaloupe.
Next I've made a panel of olive and topped with white.  On this I've stamped the large squarish medallion from Lace Medallion Labels in Memento Desert Sand.
Across the bottom of the panel I've attached a piece of green satin ribbon and topped it with yellow satin ribbon.  The sentiment is also from Lace Medallion Labels, stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and cut out with Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two (sponged with a little Memento Cantaloupe) and popped up on foam tape.

To add some pop to the lace medallion, I've stamped the Marigolds from Seeds of Summer in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured them with Copics (Y21, Y35, Y38, G20, G24, G28).  They've been cut out with scissors and popped up on foam tape in the centre of the medallion.
To finish I've just added a little paper piercing to the corners of the lace panel.

I'm also entering this into this week's CASE Study Challenge!
