CD 379 - Medallion Friendship

Welcome to this week's Colour Dare challenge! 

It's all about Valentine's this week - at least it is based on the image that is shown as the inspiration photo. That doesn't mean your project must be Valentine related - just use the colours that are shown. All neutrals are free this week as well.

I chose a sketch from Scrapbooks and Cards - Card Maps #2. I liked the idea of medallions (which I haven't used forever...) 

I started with an ombre pink base and lined it with two striped pieces and scalloped borders. The medallions were created from both cardstock and patterned paper. Some leaves were die cut and buttons were added on top of the medallions. The sentiment is certainly not just for Valentine's Day but is usable for so many occasions. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you interpret the photo shown above. 
You have two weeks to link up your project. 
We can’t wait to see what you create!

Love the rosettes, Alyson! What a beautiful array of color. I am such a fan of buttons and appreciate that you did not leave them "naked".
