For those of you who are in the path of Hurricane Irene, please take care and stay safe.
It's Friday and time for another blog hop with Sketch Frenzy Friday. Please take time to visit all the blog posts and enjoy what everyone has created.

Today's sketch  is by Deb Currier

Below is my interpretaion of the sketch.  A tutorial is included for the medallion
Stamp: Teeny Tiny wishes
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso
Papers: Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, In-color designer series paper from paper pack (Blush Bride, Pear \Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, Concord Crush, Peach Parfait)

Tutorial for Medallion:

This medallion is a great way to use scraps from your last project.

1.  Using a 1 1/4\' square punch, punch 2 of each of the in-color designer papers.  You need 10 or 12  pieces.   
2.  Fold into cones and glue together using a two way glue stick
3.  Punch 1 1/4" circle of any color card stock
4.  Adhere cones to this circle
5.  Punch 1" circle in Pear Pizzazz.and ink edges with Early Espresso ink
6.  Insert Baker's twine through button holes and tie in a bow
7.  Adhere button to 1" circle with a glue got.
8.  Adhere medallion to Whisper White card stock with dimesnionals
