PTI February Blog Hop!

Welcome to the PTI February Blog Hop! So glad you came by today! Our challenge this month is 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."

I have two cards for you today!  This first one is a complete CASE of myself from back in July!  I have always loved that card and when I think scallops I think of that card!

Since I had some new button stamps to play with, I just did some minor adjustments!  LOVE these new buttons!

For my next card, I took some inspiration from Jessica Witty! She recently created a card with crepe paper and made sort of a ruffle.  I had to try it with cardstock and scallops!

You might not be able to see but each layer is lifted for dimension!  This is one of my favorite color combos lately!  I love Melon Berry and True Black!  So fun!

So that is it for today!  If you want to go back to Nichole's blog you can see the BIG list of other scalloped creations!  Thanks for looking today!  Have a good one!
