Scallops!

Scallops! One of my very favourite things to add to a card...this week's challenge at Do You Stack Up is to use them - you've got until tomorrow afternoon to share yours!

Love that incredible picture of a scallop - so many details you don't see when you find the shell on the beach. Much more beautiful when the creature is still in it!
Supplies: rose, flourish, and scallop sticker from Echo Park "For the Record;"
sentiment from Mrs. Grossman's;
twine from Paper Smooches

The rose sticker wasn't aligned in a way I liked, so I trimmed the stem off,
and then used foam tape to pop up the bloom. Tada!
While I was in Vancouver I found the "For the Record" collection by Echo Park...12x12...on sale for $7. I really did try not to buy it, but I just could NOT pass up the deal. 

xoxo,
Jessi

First, Holy cow...you have been busy! I am exhausted, but in love! :-))))) I will start with Girl I love how you wrapped the twine! I love this technique, and I am too lazy always to take the time to do it. I love the pretty colors and the pretty flower and the pretty card in a nutshell! I love all things pretty! But I am guessing you know this about me! :-))))
