A challenge card

Yay! I am finally getting to post a challenge card once again. This one is for the sketch challenge over on DareU2DigiStamp.


I loved making this card. I got to use some more of my favorite Basic Grey paper and a ballerina was the perfect excuse for lots of PINK! :-) (My fave color, in case you haven't noticed. lol) The scallop mat was made using a border punch and this tutorial from Julie Buhler. Mine did not come out perfectly (hence the large pink flower in the lower lefthand corner!) but I can see where this might be easier with practice. (Better eyesight would help. It's hard to see the holes through the punch when you're lining up the perpendicular sides.

Supplies: Lilly digital stamp (DigiStamp Boutique), Bittersweet paper (Basic Grey), Fiskars Threading Water Scallop Punch, Prima flowers, teardrop Papershaper punch, ribbon from Michaels, Copics, CM Shapemaker with circle templates.
