This card is for Lauren Meader's April 5, 2008 Sketch. Lauren's blog is My Time, My Creations, My Stampendence. I've been busy the last couple of days creating projects for my next stamp class, but had to sneak this challenge in after seeing Lauren's fantastic sketch, and Joanne Basile's tart & tangy card this morning. Joanne's card inspired me to use Tart & Tangy and Summer Picnic DP.
My card is pretty much self-explanatory, but just want to point out a couple of things on the "cherry medallion". There is a Real Red piece behind the Bashful Blue scallop. This Real Red piece is punched with the Scallop Punch using THIS technique by Mary Jo Albright. After adhering the medallion to the card, I realized that the scallop needed more definition. I probably would have preferred paper piercing the scallops, but instead used my Basic Black Marker to add dots to the scallops.RECIPE
