FTTC56 -- Scallops




Hello everyone~
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!

OK, about my card....For the challenge, I used the Threading Water border punch and designed the scallop border on the top of the card. The same border was also used in the middle of the card front. The cherries and word "cherry" are from Cherries and Peaches set and the image was colored with Copic markers (Poppy / Evergreen and Y02, E37, 33). Then the image was adhered on the scalloped circle mat. The scalloped photo corners were put on the top corners. I crimped the designer paper using the paper crimper to give a little scallop dimension ;) The red gingham ribbon and the green rhinestones were added to finish the card.
