Stampin' Up! Artistic Etchings and Medallion paired to make Vintage Thank You Cards

I seem to have found my mojo, must have been camped in my super messy craft room, must have uncovered it while doing a quick clean up last night.... Half of my ink pads and stamp sets are at my mums house waiting for me to join them tonight, for Stamp Club tomorrow, so this was done using Stampin' Write Markers....
To start with, I used a Cherry Cobbler card base which I have layered with some Basic Black. The grid paper is from my favourite pack of Designer Series Paper- Newsprint. I have stamped the Eiffel Tower using Cherry Cobbler, masked it and stamped the Medallion using Soft Suede ink. I have tied a piece of Satin Ribbon around the base and added a tag from Tiny Tags and cut it out using the matching punch, a small hole in one end and a little bit of twine finishes this card off. 
I am entering this into the Just Add Ink colour challenge which I struggled with at first, but that's what a challenge is all about isn't it? 
Until next time, Happy Stamping!
