A round scallop card for the Mojo Monday challenge

I hope that you've had a great Easter. We had some treasured family time with both sets of parents and really enjoyed the good weather for a change. Here's hoping that it's just as sunny and warm next weekend.

And being a bank holiday I've also found time to play along with the Mojo Monday challenge, which this week is a choice of Round or Square:

I opted for Round, using my new Scallop Circle die with my Big Shot and going for a sepia look:

Stamp set: Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Versamark, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Crumb Cake
DSP: Elegant Soiree
Punches: Scallop Edge, 1-3/4" Circle, Boho Blossoms
Seam Binding Ribbon: Crumb Cake
Bigz Die: Scallop Circle
Other: Gold EP, Gold Brad, Basic Pearls
Non-SU: Circle dies

The base card is two of the Scallop Circles die cut from Crumb Cake card and adhered at the top. A circle mat of Chocolate Chip was spritzed with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol and once dry, adhered to the front of the card. A strip of Elegant Soiree DSP was wrapped with Crumb Cake ribbon and adhered to a strip of Crumb Cake card that had been punched with the Scallop Edge. A faux bow was secured over the ribbon with a Gold Brad and then a Pearl used to cover the brad. These layers were adhered to the card front. After stamping the sentiment onto Chocolate Chip card with Versamark it was heat embossed with Gold EP and punched out with the 1-3/4" Circle. This was then adhered direct to a circle mat of Very Vanilla and popped up on dimensionals on the card front. The flowers were punched with the Boho Blossoms from Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip card. They were shaped, layered and finished in the centres with Pearls and added using glue dots. Finally three small pearls were added to complete the sketch.

Ah well, back to work tomorrow but at least it's just for three days :-)

Beautiful Sara. I just bought this die last week and it hasn't made it off my desk yet - I LOVE it! I haven't actually made a round card yet - so thank you for the inspiration. X
