 This is the inspiration photo for this week's Skipping Stones Design challenge.  I really loved the color combo, but needed to make a birthday card fro my brother-in-law so I didn't think I could pull off the melon and berry.  I went with the map theme and the tan, grey, and blue color combo.  The medallion was created with a SU! scalloped circle punch, a spellbinders circle die sponged with ink and stamped with a circle image and layered with a My Mind's Eye brad from the "lush" collection.  I really like how it came out and will be using that combo again I believe.  I'm just a little afraid it looks a bit "girly"  but maybe it's just sophisticated.

I absolutely love that you pulled the map from the image to use as your inspiration. That's why I love these challenges so much! Thanks for inspiring so many while playing along with our Skipping Stones Designs challenge this week!
