FTTC #56 - Scallops

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC56)! This week Cindy Haffner is our host. Cindy is challenging us to use scallops. Whether you add scalloped shells, tiny scallop borders, or scalloped frames, we would love to see what you create using scallops on your cards this week!

I'm using the daffodil stamp from A Year In Flowers Set 1 for my card today. I'm working my way through the months, but I decided I'm done with winter and I'm ready for Spring. Nothing signals the beginning of Spring like daffodils and, actually, mine are poking up out of the soil now, so it won't be long :) In fact, I have some of these pale yellow narcissus with the orange cup very much like my image and can't wait to see them!

I stamped the image on Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers in the Daffodil, Tigerlily, and Evergreen collections. Then I cut/embossed it with a Classic Oval Nestabilities die. I'm using a scallop punch on the bottom of the striped layer and as a mat for my image. I did some sewing and sponging, then added some gold flat backed pearls and a silky ribbon, and added the sentiment, cut with a Spellbinders label tag to finish if off. My base card is Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock. I'm using TESC #102 for my layout.

Thanks for dropping by today! Don't forget to check out what my awesome team mates have to show you!
