Scallops for Christmas

Good morning everyone. Firstly I'll have to tell you that I had a fantastic day at the spa on Saturday. It really was complete bliss to spend some relaxation time and get pampered from head to toe. Then to come home and find my house had been tidied and cleaned by my youngest daughter and my eldest daughter had done some baking, was wonderful!

Anyway, enough waffle. Today's Creative Card Crew Challenge is Scallops. My card is quite a quick make. I had a go at inking the cuttlebug folder before putting it through the big shot but the photo doesn't really show the full effect.
Items used:
Papermania 'Joyeux Noel' stamp set
Divine Swirls Cuttlebug Folder
Silver mirror Card
Scallop Nestabilities
Kanban Bling Gems
Celebration Silver Ribbon

We're sponsored by Crafty Addicts today and Heather has given this lovely Kars Christmas Embellishment Pack as the prize. Thank you Heather.

I hope you'll join us again and remember to pop over to the challenge blog for scallop inspiration from the rest of the talented design team.

Sharon xx

Love your card, Sharon! Great colors and results from inking the CB folder. I can't quite seem to get the hang of that. I am never happy with the results, but you have inspired me to keep on trying! So glad to hear that your 50th b'day was a great experience. My next big one is 60 and I am not looking forward to that one!
