Sharon's Scalloped Edge!

The weekend always brings about such wonderful challenges from other bloggers. Oh, how I wish I could do them all! Last weekend, I was able to participate in Beate's Sketch Challenge. This weekend, I decided to do Sharon Johnson's Challenge. Her challenge is to use a scalloped edge on the card that you create.

Here's my card...yes, I know that I didn't use any of my new! I'm afraid that will have to wait until tomorrow! My Sassy Stems set was still out from the card I made a few days ago, so I was inspired to use it again. I started off with a card base of Barely Banana. My black scalloped edge is made with Stampin' Up's Slit Punch (guard removed). I added a strip of Cool Caribbean and then I decided that I needed a bit of black on the right side of the strip to balance everything. I paper pierced the other black piece before I attached it for a little bit of detail. I just love this May Arts ribbon with the swirls! I was going to go with polka dotted ribbon, but the swirls reminded me of the scallops. So I thought this ribbon would be a nice way to tie it all together!. My image is watercolored with Barely Banana and Cool Caribbean inks. Star Dust Stickles were added for a bit of sparkle. The sweet little "happy birthday" is from Stampin' Up's Little Hellos set (another retired favorite).

Enjoy your Saturday! So glad that you could stop by...Toodles! :D
