Creative Inspirations challenge 3 - Scallops

Two posts in one day, can't remember the last time that happened!
Thought I should have some quality crafting time and catch up on some challenges today, the boys are out, Elle is supposed to be revising - the house is lovely and quiet.

The challenge over at Creative Inspirations this week is scallops, so having several punches with scallops on I thought I would join in this one.



Time to use some of my lovely SU! stash, I love the set I have used here, Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set along with papers from the Sweet Always designer paper set, another favourite of mine. The image was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock with Chocolate Chip ink, coloured in with Creamy Caramel Stampin Pastels. The icing on the cake is paper pieced from scraps, it has a lovely sheen to it, not very clear in the photo but very effective IRL.
I have used my scallop border punch along the right side of the card front and on the Pumpkin Pie mat on the front of the card. Sentiment has been stamped on WW cs in Choc Chip and mounted onto a scalloped oval which has been paper pierced. Do you think there's enough scallops?

Am off out in the garden now, ought to do a bit of pruning while the sun is shining. See you later.
