Challenge # 171 at FCCB, Shaped Card

Hope everyone has had time to craft this weekend.  It's Monday again and time for a new challenge at FCCB. For this challenge the Design Team will be inspiring you with their shaped card creations.  Make sure you check them out.  Here is what I created for this week.

I used Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge for my shaped card.  I cut the card @ 5" using the book feature.  I cut it out twice reversing the image for the back of the card. I then scored it about a 1/4" from the straight edge then adhered it the the front. The scalloped oval I cut at 3.50" using the oblong frame feature in some teal cardstock.  It was a small scrap so I'm not sure what paper collection it is from. As you can see I faux stitched around the frame with a white gel pen.

The paper collection I used for the base of the card is DCWV "Butterfly Garden".  The sentiment I stamped using a bargin from Tuesday Morning $1.99 stamp set from Inkadinkado, "Love and Friendship".  I stamped it out using Key Lime ink from American Crafts ink pad (another TM bargin) then fussy cut it.   It is adhered using pop-dots for dimension. The Memories stamp is from 7 Gypsies.

For my embellishments I used some hand-dyed crinkle ribbon, Prima flowers, also a bargin from TM.  May be I should title this card Tuesday Morning card, LOL.  Each flower has a blush pearl for it's center. Some of the flowers I adhered directly to the card and others I used pop-dots.

That's my card for today.  Hope it inspires you to give this challnege a try.  Let your creative imagination flow and link up at FCCB.
