Scalloped Medallion Birthday

Ok, I had to add a second layer of the scalloped medallion in Apricot Appeal! Much better!

I have been wanting to try the scalloped medallion technique, especially after seeing some of Nancy Riley's fabulous creations with it. The Pink Elepant Sketch Challenge #20 has a nice focal in the center of the sketch, so instead of a circle, I thought I'd take a stab at the scalloped medallion. It looks difficult, but it is SO EASY! Check out the tutorial for the Scalloped Medallion over at Splitcoaststampers by clicking HERE!

The apricot layer really lifts the card - it's fab.

Must check out that technique - it's very very effective.
