spots, stripes and scallops!

For my card today I've made something combining a couple of challenges - this weeks CASual Friday which is scallops and MAWTT which is spots and stripes.  As Annabelle Stamps is sponsoring CASual Friday I an also entering this into their anything goes challenge for this week.

I started with a square kraft base and cut a scallop from a sheet of scrap card using a spellbinders edgeability and used it to create a mask.  I used mahogany and walnut stain DI to create the first two rows of scallops and then cut a final row of scallops form striped paper and finished it with a red spotted ribbon.  The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse and stamped with chocolate pearl.  The final element is a chipboard flower, covered with chocolate glitter with a red button centre. 

I'll be back later with this weeks' LIM entry - been busy today helping a friend prep her wedding invites - I've stamped 100 this morning!
