Blogger's Challenge #94

It's Friday and time for the next Blogger's Challenge, today #94. Today's challenge is to use a technique of your choice. I opted to use one I saw not too long ago and have been wanting to try. Now I have an excuse to make me do it! lol! It is the ruffled scallop edge and I first saw it on the blog of it's creator, Jan Tinklenberg, a very talented paper artist.

For my focal image I used the birthday cake from Eight Great Greetings, a versatile set of eight from the wonderful new Occasions Mini Catalog. This was punched out then layered on a Regal Rose punched circle. The ruffle was attached to that . The Designer Paper used on this card is all from the Sweet Always package and it is very sweet indeed, composed of Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White. On the polka dot paper, I stamped a dotted flower image from the coordinating Always stamp set in Chocolate Chip to give it more interest and balance the design.

Stamps: Eight Great Greetings, Always
Inks: Basic Black, Chocolate Chip Classic; Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie Markers
Paper: Sweet Always Designer Paper; Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch, Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon, 1 1/2" and 1 3/4" Circle Punches

Be sure to visit the other Blogger's Challenge Players on this list to see what technique they did. I can't wait to do so myself!

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you enjoy the card. Have a good Friday and a wonderful Easter weekend!
