Dare to be Fabulous!

I did this card for Taylor's cupcake sketch challenge. I don't have any cupcake stamps though, so this is what I went with. I LOVE this sketch. I'll definitely be using this one more often. This was a really quick card, and I just love the size (3 X 6). I didn't stick to the sketch exactly since the scallop is supposed to be behind the strip, but I don't have any bigger scallops, and it looked funny since you couldn't see much of it.

Am I the only one that is in love with Boho Backgrounds? It's rare that one of the inexpensive smaller sets becomes a favorite, but this one sure has. It's kinda funny, the reason I got it was because I was also getting One of a Kind and it matches, but I've used this set a lot more. -Stamps-Boho Backgrounds and Fabulous Flowers
-Paper-Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla cardstock
-Ink-Chocolate Chip and Soft Sky
-Accessories-Scallop punch, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, Paper Piercing tool and mat pack.

I've never seen Boho backgrounds look so good - stunning card, Emily! I just love the colors.

Love, love, love this Emily! One thing I've seen others do is cut the scallop circle in half and spread the halves apart behind the other layer so they look bigger. Maybe that would work with this one. But I love it just the way it is.

Love this color combo and I have been eyeing boho backgrounds for awhile, hopefully it will make new cattie and I can buy it.
