Caardvarks

This Caardvarks challenge is by Sheetload of Cards- they made the sketch for the challenge this week. I really liked the scallops on there- I'm a scallop lovin' girl lately- so last night when I was watching some of the new episodes of Weeds - I created this card.



btw- did you know you can watch episodes online? I use Yidio or Netflix
and search for the shows I want to watch-

back to my card- again- I am loving my Dream Street papers- I have several favorite papers and these from Forever Family work sooo well with these AWESOME CTMH butterfly stamps I have on long term loan from my sis Kelly. I stamped them onto the patterned paper and glitter them with Stickles. I cut out this medallion from the background of a sheet and cut the scallops around it with scissors.


the cream sheet behind that circle is actually a recycling bit, I used the backing sheet from some Prima flowers, it was too pretty to trash. I used my cloud scissors for the scalloped mat, then added on a few buttons, and handwrote my greeting on a handcut tag. Adding in some plain satin ribbon finished this off.

Thanks for dropping by!
