Stampin' for the Weekend - Double or Nothing


This week there is a choice of 2 sketches to choose from, one by Donna & one by Kimmi. I picked Donna's sketch for my entry;



I used Prima papers and a sweet Grojuss girl to make my card. I coloured the image and shaded the background using distress inks. I made my scalloped circle using a circle cutter, and a corner punch to do the scallop - I used the crop-a-dile to make the holes, then distressed the edges to make it stand out against the background paper. The flowers are also from Prima and the sentiment is a Studio G. I finished it off using 2 white buttons threaded with floss.

Here's an interesting fact a friend has just shared with me:
At five minutes and six seconds after 4 am on the 8th of July this year, the time and date will be 04:05:06 07/08/09.

This is so cute and you have put so much work into it with all that distressing and punching the holes they are so even it looks like it was a border punch well done.
