FS97 - Cards by America!!!

This week's Featured Stamper on SCS is Cards By America!!! She has the most stunning gallery for you to check out!! Normally it takes me forever to decide on which card to case, but as soon as I saw this card I knew it was the one for me!
I changed the colours, the image and sentiment and kept the layout, similar corners and the ribbon underneath. I just had to use scallops though!! :)
I started with a white card base, matted with Bashful Blue (pierced of course!) and topped with some beautiful paper by Little Yellow Bicycle (I've nearly run out of it, so I have to track some more down!!). In the corners I've used the dies from the 'Vintage' Cuttlebug die set and cut them out in white (in hindsight, I guess I should have used blue...) and put pearls in each corner. The main panel is made of the largest circle scallop nestabilites and cut out two white scallop panels and offset them and pierced the scallops. Topped with some Bashful Blue cut with the plain circle nestabilities and pierced around the edge and stamped the sentiment to one side in Close to Cocoa. The image was stamped in versacolor black and clear embossed, coloured with markers and a blender pen (creamy caramel, brocade blue and a soft grey tombow), cut out and popped up on foam tape to the side of the sentiment. The whole circular panel is popped on foam tape on top of some sheer white organdy ribbon. The beautiful image and sentiment are from Our Daily Bread Designs and were part of the order that arrived this week!!!
Thats all for today, thanks for visiting!! :)
