Circle and Scallops for The Pink Elephant


The challenge on The Pink Elephant this week is to use circles and scallops. I wanted to do something a bit different and used this circle with a scalloped border from the Storybook cartridge. I threaded a strip of pattern paper through it (Bo Bunny) and decorated the strip with sequin ribbon (rusty pickle). The background was stamped using Stampin Up's Dream a Little set. I cut flowers from the paper and put some unravelled black fuzzy wool behind them then dotted a few gems around.
Talking of challenges, don't forget to pop over to Cute Daisy May and have a go at making a card with their cute sketch - you don't have to use their images, and you can win a free download. It's a new site so you have a good chance of winning.

  18. Great idea, Enfys, to thread the PP (adding the oh so nice sequence) through the scallop circle! Gives it a nice look to the card; and I am liking the way you stamped the background (and the black ties in nicely!)- just a very nice card, Enfys!
