THANKS A BUNCH

Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #9 uses the colors of Grass Green, Black and Cream. My personal Stampin' Up! interpretation of the green is Certainly Celery, and I accidentally used Whisper White instead of Vanilla. I don't think I've ever used Certainly Celery with Basic Black, and I kind of like it!

This card is very similar to THIS Scallop Border Medallion card I posted a couple of days ago. I just couldn't resist using this technique again --- it's so easy! In case you missed it, you can find the tutorial for the Scallop Border Medallion HERE. My Certainly Celery Scallop Square is 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" and bordered by a Basic Black piece that measures 2 7/8" square.
Overall card size is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".
RECIPE
Stamps: A Little Somethin' (Level Two Hostess)
Paper: Certainly Celery Prints DP (retired), Basic Black, Certainly Celery, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Jet Black Staz-On, Certainly Celery
Embellishments: Black Brad
Tools: 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Circle Cutter, Trio Flower Punch, Scallop Border Punch, Paper Piercer & Mat Pack

I'll be back tonight with this week's iPICKS!
