Pink Pink Pink

Hey Everybody! For this card I had a few design ideas in mind before I got started. I liked Dawn's scallops here and I wanted to try another version of a butterfly like I did here. Usually before I start a card I pull out all the papers I want to use. For this card I pulled out a bunch of pinks, kraft and brown. After I put the pink elements together I ditched the browns and went with black. I don't use it often but am glad I did for this card. Maybe it will inspire me to use it more often. :)

I wasn't looking forward to using my border punch for the scallop detail so I came up with the idea to cut out a bunch of scallop rectangles using my Nestabilities and trimmed them in to rows. Much easier. :)

Materials:
[Love You Butterfly Card]
Stamps: Hero Arts Heart Winged Butterfly, Many Hearts
Ink: Memories Black Die, StazOn Black
Paper: PTI, BoBunny, Bazzill Swiss Dots Embossed

Beautiful striking card Ashley! I was inspired by the way Dawn had done the scallops on her card too. You have used them well!
