SCS FEATURED STAMPER CHALLENGE FS81 KOKIROSE

Today's Featured Stamper #81 on SCS is Patricia, Kokirose on SCS. HERE is Patricia's card I chose to case. I changed the stamp set to Simply Said and the colors to those from Cutie Pie DP ... Purely Pomegrante, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery. I used X-Mas Red Stickles for the flower centers. They really sparkle IRL, and was impossible to capture in the photo. The oval sentiment is backed by two staggered Bashful Blue ovals of the same size. The scallop border was created with the new Scallop Border Punch, and I used my Paper Piercer to add a hole on each scallop. I used the flower outline stamp from this stamp set for the Bashful Blue background piece by stamping in Versamark before running through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.

Off to mentally prepare for week three on the new job .... where DID the weekend go?! RECIPE

I used this set to death when it first came out and got really tired of it. But now that I've seen your fantastic card, I'll have to pull it back out. The color scheme is beautiful, love the double oval and two scalloped edges.
