PTI Blog Hop - Scallops

Hello everyone! I decided to participate in the PTI blog hop. Our challenge was to use scallops. Here is my card.

I used the banner dies to make my scallops on the right hand side and cut the normal scallops on the left hand side on the pink PTI cardstock. The gingham is done with Palette Noir ink and the gingham stamp from the bitty back ground set.

I cut three blossoms out from Tim Holtz tattered florals die, distressed them with spun sugar distress ink after stamping them with the "thank you so very much" sentiment. Folded the petals down and added the gingham brad (Making Memories) to the center.

Using the Matt stack 3 die, white cardstock is cut out and then stamped with the gingham from the Matt stack 3 collection in Palette Noir. Added the flower to the center after placing a black cs circle to the center.

Finished it off with a ribbon bow tied out of black grosgrain.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
