Dusting off the medallion!!

Hello everyone,
Well I got a bonus day today to do my craft.  The doc told me yesterday I had shingles but I could go to work.  However, because I work in a Hospital (not nursing) my boss wanted to wait for clearance from Occ Health - so couldn't go in today.  Feel a bit of a fraud but hey ho if they tell me to have a day off who am I to argue!! :)
Anyway, I thought I'd have a go at the Sophisticat challenge.  I was a bit daunted when I first saw it but when I saw that it didn't have to be a huge flower I thought I'd give it a go.
I also thought I would submit this for two other challenges:
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Black, white and 1 other colour
CRAFT challenge - No backing paper - boy that was hard to do!!  Good challenge guys!.
So here is the sketch from Sophisticat:

And here is the card I made.

Hopefully you can see that there are three layers here on the big design in the middle and that the two smaller designs are cut from the middle of the main medallion. (Now this wood mounted rubber stamp has been in my stash for ages, I can't remember where I bought it - possibly Hobbycraft - or whose make it is as I can't read the writing on the side of the stamp) I used my quickie glue pen and pale turquoise glitter (for my other colour) and picked out pieces to cover with glitter.  The white, black and turquoise brads are from my stash.  The sentiment is one from Janet at Pink Gem.
