2S4Y #4 My Dear Kind & Wonderful Friend


I looked at Laura's sketch this week & scratched my head a little with the middle scallop hanging off the edge, but hey they aren't called challenges for nothing! I wanted to make my card so it was still deliverable because I will be sending it in the mail so my card base is 4" wide so the scallops are 4 1/4"-mission accomplished. I just received the All Holidays stamp set by SU! for achieving a goal for my sales during sale-a-bration, I lost quite a few sentiment sets last year when the All Year Cheers retired. I really like this set, I had been eyeing all the cards made with it the past year. I am getting real excited about all the new stuff - just about 3 more weeks to go!!

I used 3 of my favorite colors I hadn't used in a while, several years ago I made a card for an upline event using them that won me $50 in free product for best of show card! I really like them together especially with this set.
Stamps: All Holidays, Fresh Cut Notes
Cardstock/Inks: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Rose Red, Basic Black
Accessories: silver brad, paper piercer, slit punch (so happy we are getting a new scallop edge punch!!) celery wide grosgrain ribbon.
Pin It

This is jus gorgeous, Donna! I too had a hard time with the scallop over the edge, thats why mine only pokes over just a tad, lol. I absolutely love you idea of putting the ribbon on the scallop like that! I agree, fantastic colors together too.
