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.
Bye, Bye for Now,
