DYSU Challenge #91

Good Morning,
It's time again for our next fun challenge over at Do You Stack Up? and this week our theme is "SCALLOPS". 

Really not keen on this inspiration photo though - lol !!

Our generous sponsors this week are...........

Craft Sentiments Designs - Winner's Choice of 4 Images

Little Claire Designs - $15 Gift Certificate for Digis

Rhoda Design Studio - $15 Gift Certificate for Cutting Files or Digis

I was asked by a neighbour if I would make a Birthday card for her daughter's 2nd Birthday so I decided to use various scalloped circles and submit it as my inspiration piece.  Usual problem of course, so difficult to photograph easel cards!!

As I had free choice this week, I used this little cutie from Pink Gem called "Fairy Chloe".

And this is the matching box I made for the card. 

Medium - Promarkers and Spun Sugar DI
Papers - Dovecraft "Princess Fairytale" and Forever Friends "New Arrival"
Letters - Lasercuts by Karen Marie Klip coloured with a Promarker - have had these for years!!!
Banner - hand cut by me!!
Gems, charm, butterfly and lace - stash
Glitter - My Craft Studio "Crystal"
Various scalloped Nesties and Grand Nesties

There is even more gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team over on the DYSU Challenge blog which I hope will encourage you to join in with this fun challenge. Cant't wait so see your lovely entries.
Thank you so much for looking.
Happy Crafting.
Denise xx
