BASIC PIROUETTES + BEATE'S SKETCH

This card is sooo not my best work but thought I would share anyway. It just didn't turn out on paper like it appeared in my head. I used Beate's wonderful Weekend Sketch Challenge #62 and SCS Color Challenge #188 of Pink Pirouette, Basic Black, and Whisper White. The polka dot designer paper is from Sweet Always, and the stamp set is Enjoy Every Moment. It's difficult to see in the photo, but there are paper pierced holes in each scallop of the borders.
RECIPE
Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment
Paper: Sweet Always DP, Pink Pirouette, Basic Black, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Basic Black
Embellishments: Black Brad, Black Gingham Ribbon, Flower Fusion Too
Tools: Scallop Circle Punch, Paper Piercing Tool, 1 3/4" Circle Punch

You are hard on yourself! I find this card very lovely! I have to admit that sometime when it's different that what we haved planned we are not as proud as we could of our work! Have a wonderful day!
