Freshly Made Sketches - Hugs To You!

I hope you're doing ok.  I know I'm still so shaken up by the shooting in Las Vegas.  I want to hang on to my kids a little tighter...   feeling like we all need a big hug today! 

My therapy is crafting.. it can't fix the world, but it help mends me.  I can send cards to family and friends to let them know I love them and work through my own troubles while I'm creating.

Today I'm playing at Freshly Made Sketches.  Here's the sketch for this time. It's got lots of possibilities. 
I took a few liberties with the sketch.  Instead of one big background I added a few layers.  Empty spaces still scare me.
All the products I used are from Pretty Pink Posh.  The Scallop Circle is the focal point for my design.  I added a sentiment from Birdie Friends on a Stitched Label.  I love the repeated pattern of stitches that tie the die cuts together. 
The florals are from the Bold Blooms stamp set.  I added little pearls to the flower centers.  A bright yellow strip of washi adds a pop of color to the grey / monochrome background.
