PTI Blog Hop: Scallops ~

Hi all!  Just bopping in today with a card I made for Papertrey Ink's February blog hop combined with the current Make It Mondays challenge.

Here's a little about the blog hop:  This month we decided to dedicate the Blog Hop to scallops! We want to see your best use of scallops, of any sort, on a project! This can include scalloped borders, offset-scallops, stamped scallops, scalloped mats, scalloped frames, layered scallops, scalloped tags or anything else you can dream up! You can use dies, patterned scissors or even circle punches in a row to achieve your special look. We are looking forward to seeing all of your amazing creations!
The current Make It Mondays challenge is to use Scor Tape to glitterfy your project.  This is actually one of my favorite techniques for applying glitter!  It just makes your project so fun and sparkly without the mess of glue!

I dreamt of this card for many hours last night...see what I get for looking at my reader right before going to sleep!  In my dream, I got to craft with Nichole Heady!!  She came over to my table as I was working and decided that she needed to add a glittery strip to her card after seeing mine...LOL  One can dream!  ;o)

Nothing new and different with scallops here.  I just used a border punch and added a blue glittery stripe to mimic the strip in the terracotta vase.  I rounded the top corners to somewhat go with the Mat Stack 3 die cut.  The edges of the card and the die cut are distressed with Antique Linen ink.  I completely CASEd a card from a fellow PTI'er, again because I saw it right before heading up to dreamland.  You can see her adorable card here.  Thanks Annie and PTI for the continual inspiration!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  :o) lyss
