so many challenges, so little time

at least it gives me a reason to make a card! this is for the moxie fab world offset scallops challenge--LOVE! that first 'inspiration' shoe--O.M.Geeeeee! i'd wear the hell outta those shoes. the black and kraft/tan is right up my alley, for sure. i used the papertrey ink small scallop border die for my scallops and i nestled the tiniest little pearls randomly into them. i also randomly popped up some scallops with just my fingernail. i think i'll send this to my sister-in-law, along with her gift--late, of course, her birthday was yesterday. i'm a big FAIL at sending the cards i make.


stamps: papertrey ink mixed messages
card stock: papertrey ink
ink: brilliance graphite black
ribbon: martha stewart moire tafetta
pearls: recollections from michael's
