The Pink Elephant


The challenge this week at The Pink Elephant is Scallops and Circles

And for this I used a scalloped card, and then used my nesties to cut a scalloped circle and then punched out a circle to fit in the centre

I used my new Stampin up stamp for the image and sentiment and cut a circular shape out of the side so it slotted into the ribbon and bow

i have been so busy i haven't managed to take part in this challenge for a couple of weeks so made an effort today to make sure I did it
