Stampin' Up! Medallion and Vintage Vogue paired together to make Friendship Cards

Hi Again! I have been on a roll recently with my cards, and last night I had to make one more before bed.... I had been thinking of this one for a couple of hours before making it.....
For this card, I knew I wanted to play with this lovely F from Vintage Vogue, and also the Medallion background stamp that my mum recently gave me. I have stamped the F in Basic Black and then masked it off and stamped the Medallion in Rich Razzleberry, tied a ribbon around the base, and mounted the white cardstock to a Basic Black card base, while I was sitting deciding if I was done, I grabbed a few rhinestones and popped them around the circle of the Medallion. 
I am entering this into the Less is More Monogram challenge, which scared me at first, as I don't own an alphabet set yet, but, I realised I have a few stamps that will work. Keep an eye out, I've got another on brewing in the back of my mind.... 
Thanks for dropping by
Happy Stamping!
