Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 29


The challenge over at Secret Crafter this week was to make a shaped card & as it's for tomorrow I've left it to the last minute - again!! Seem to be doing a lot of that lately, which has resulted in a pretty shabby photo as it's 6pm, wet & dreary & the light outside is awful, that's what happens when you leave it so late to do something.

Quite a challenge for me, I've not done something like this before and it took a while to decide what to do, but then thought of using my trusted Nesties and went from there.

I've used some glittery card (doesn't really show in the picture) for the base, then added 2 smaller scallops cut from Stampin' Up! DSP's Sweet Always set and put the image, from a Stamposaurus stamp on the smallest scallop and coloured her with Sakura Stardust pens for some more sparkle.  I've used the same DSP's and a computer generated sentiment inside the card & hinged the two scallops together with some more DSP - which has a good weight to it, so it's not too flimsy.

I've added some flowers and bling from my stash and a chipboard sentiment, which seemed appropriate.
