Mojo Monday and Pals Paper Art

This card is for both the Mojo Monday for week 179 and Pals Paper Art No 82

For this weeks card I used my brayer to create the blue sky and the green at the bottom of the picture.  I embossed the image onto the card to give it that little bit extra shine.  The DSP is from the Soft Subtles book of papers.  There are so many wonderful designs in the book it was hard to decide which ones to use. To do the circle with the scallop trim border I cut a long piece of basic black punched the scallop and then cut about every 1cm along the strip so it would bend into the circle shape ( a little bit tricky but it gives a nice finish) For the actual circles I used the SU Circle Cutter


A quick peek at the inside I have added a similar border to the front and embossed a few of the daisies in the corner.
Stamps:  Upsy Daisy, Well Scripted
Card:  Wild Wasabi, Basic Black and Very Vanilla Soft Subtles DSP Collection
Ink:  Wild Wasabi ,  Marina Mist and Versamark
Accessories:  Punches ribbon  and gel pen, Circle Cutter

  2. I've never heard of the method you used for the scalloped border around the circle....where have I been?!!!!!! I will have to try it since I don't have the funds to get the fancy dies and all, so Thank You very much. Your card is beautiful.
