Just uploading the card I made for the Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop; hop challenge: scallops. It's also for Papertrey's Make It Monday Challenge #3: Glitter Strips with Scor-Tape. (I laid down two strips of 1/4" Scor-Tape side-by-side and piled on some Pink Paislee Chocolate Pixie Stix glitter. Love how this turned out!)
I made my scalloped frame by punching 1/2" circles and individually adhering them to the back of my main panel. I also used a scalloped border punch along the bottom of my long panel. My birthday wishes sentiment (from the Papertrey Ink set Everyday Button Bits) is stamped on an adorable blank ticket that I won in some blog candy from Paper Crafts Go-To Gal Teri Anderson. How cute is that?? And that yummy layered flower? It's a Frosty Pink Lollipop by Prima, sent to me by Debzi333 as part of my prize for the December Gallery Comment Contest that she hosted (Thanks, Debzi!!!!). I thought it might make a fantastic focal point.
Thanks for taking a look!

Woo Hoo Emzi, this is one fine piece of art. Debzi sent you that beautiful flower - don't think she didn't have ulterior motives my friend - that flower is a perfect place to insert her transmitters - so no lying on punch count okay? Beautiful details, great b/g, ticket and awesome STITCHING - I saw what Dizzi said - the nerve!! Tell Benzi to send me that sewing machine she promised and I will be a pro in no time!

Wow is that pretty. I just love this color pink and the frosted edges on that flower look amazing. To me it looks good enough to eat since I cut my calorie intake with no sweets. It looks like icing I could lick right about now!!! lol
