My Time To Craft Challenge

Hi all, this is the first entry on my blog so hope it's OK. Everyone tells me how great it is to share ideas and I've been following a few 'crafty blogs' recently so thought I'd give it a go myself. I've decided to enter this weeks 'My Time To Craft' Challenge 'So Many Scallops'. My entry is an engagement card made recently for friends of my youngest son. I used a plain white base card, digital download backing paper from 'Pink Petticoat' which I punched on one side with Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch. The image is Sarah Kay which I stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black onto the scallop shape cut with my Cricut (Accent Essentials cart) and coloured with Marvy Le Plume pens - this I layered onto the larger blue scallop. I used a Fiskers heart border punch on the base card, computer generated text which I diecut using nestabilities. Charm and ribbon from stash.
