PTI blog hop: featuring scallops!


The challenge is to use scallops - however & wherever, on whatever we want.  Challenge accepted.

I cut a circle into my scallop-squares to feature the sweet scrapbook papers underneath.  Turned them into cute little frames.  Can you tell that they are popped up with some foam tape?

I love the row of tiny mushrooms at the bottom (from "way to go, kiddo!").  A miniature office clip on the side,  and a banner (stamped first with an image from the "Mat Stack 2" set and then the sentiment from the same set over top) make this card a pretty celebration of new life.

And just in time to be able to give this to a verrrrrry patient mommy-to-be!  C'mon out, new little gingerbread!

  4. I can not get over how striking this card is. Even though the colors are muted, the design is really, really interesting. I just love how you put the button in the corner of the scallop. What an interesting idea. Great job today.
