Sweet One

Hi everyone - hope you had a wonderful Sunday! The sun was shining brightly here today and the snow is melting - it still gets cold at night but the sun is staying up longer so you know that Spring is on it's way! I saw some daffodils pushing up through the dirt in a sunny corner at my church this morning - another wonderful sign of warm weather coming!

I made this cute little baby card for the Featured Stamper challenge on Split coast - I chose this card from Petal Pushers wonderful gallery.
I just got this stamp set called So Many Scallops from Stampin Up and wanted to use it so this card was a great opportunity! The differences between my card and Petal Pushers are that I changed the colors, the DP, moved one of the photo corner positions and used a ribbon instead of a panel. I love the old fashioned images of children on this designer paper and I've been wanting to use it on a card.
I made the stars and scalloped circle using my nestability dies with my Cuttlebug. The corners are made with the photocorner punch that punches a large and small piece at the same time. I got my punch from Stampin Up.
Thanks for stopping by at my blog. I really appreciate your taking the time!
Stamps: So many scallops: SU
Paper: Sage Shadow, River Rock, DP: Autumn Leaves all occasion pack
Ink: Lettuce Adirondack
Accessories: white gel pen, star brads, ribbon: Papertreyink, photo corner punch, hole punch, Star & Circle nestabilities

Hi Julia,
This is very pretty, I like the added strip of colored paper on the scallop piece. The DP is gorgeous.

I saw this great card in the "so many scallops" gallery and just had to CASE it. Mine is a lot more simpler, but my dp was very busy so I was afraid to add much more. Your card is perfection. Stop by my blog to see mine, www.danasdabblingstudio.blogspot.com

Thanks!!!
