Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #74

Hello and Happy Wednesday!
I can't believe it's Wednesday already!  What a day Tuesday was!  I'm looking forward to the end of the week already!  Hopefully I'll get a few minutes on the weekend for some crafting!!!

Wednesday brings us a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week's hostess is the one and only (and very creative) Allisa Chilton!  She has a fabulous sketch for us this week!  I was a little panicked at first but then I remembered that I wanted to haul out my Medallion stamp and voila!
I have a new found love for Basic Grey!  Don't ask me why...I just love it!  I got out the very well used white embossing powder, my new and favourite Stampin' Distress Tool and some pearls!  I realize now that I put my pearls in the wrong spot...oops!  My birthday card stash is slowly becoming replenished!  Now to add some sympathy and baby cards to the mix!!!

Cardstock: Basic Grey
Stamps: Medallion, Apothecary Art (Sentiment)
Ink: Versamark
Other: White Embossing Powder, Basic Pearls, Dimensionals, Stampin' Distress Tool

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're able to head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see all of the other beautiful creations!

Have a fantastic day!
