Medallion Organization Card

I am participating in a 30 day clean up/de-clutter challenge in my craft room.  One of my thoughts is while doing this I want to see what stamps I haven't used and sell them and the other thought was discovering stamps that I love but haven't used or ever inked up.  The medallion in the center of the card is one of them.  

I was inspired by a layout by Laurie Schmidlin where she used layers of grey card stock and contrasted it with a white background on one of the layers.  Her card used florals. This inspiration may be found at Laurie Schmidlin Inspiration Card

All supplies are Papertrey Ink, other than the ink used for the larger medallion.
