Scalloped Sweet Summer

Hi everyone! It's Thursday and that means there is a new Ways to Use it Challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers! This week's challenge is to use GREY as a neutral. I love using grey as a neutral so this challenge wasn't too hard for me.

This is also for today's Pals Paper Arts challenge to create CAS card using scallops. Again, this was pretty easy for me because I love scallops! CAS is always a little tough just because I love to embellish! I think I pulled it off pretty good on this card, though.

Finally, the sketch comes from Tuesday's Inspirational Card Sketch. I was lucky enough to find a sketch that already had scallops "built" in! HAHA!

I used my new Sale-a-Bration Set, Sweet Summer (free when you place a $50 order) and a set from last year called Whimiscal Words. The designer paper I used is Lap of Luxury. The image was created by stamping on watercolor paper, then using my aquapainter and makers to water color. The flowers themselves are cut out and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

The ribbon is Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
