Scallops Galore

For some time now I've been checking out Julie Tilman's blog, Poetic Artistry...especially on Monday's as she has what she calls Mojo Monday. On Mondays she posts a sketch for everyone to try. I always want to try it but this is the first time I've actually taken the sketch and make it work for my card. Anyway, I have a friend who just found out that she is pregnant and I want to send her a card of congratulations so this is what I've come up with. It is certainly a unique card with several different elements going on...maybe to many? Anyway, I'm in love with my Nestibilities. I'm totally getting down how to use them in my Cuttlebug and they are SO easy to use and cut so cleanly and precisely. I also used my Cuttlebug with the Baby embossing folder and highlighted the word "precious". I had to use the sentiment "Absolutely Fabulous" from PTI's Mixed Messages set, too. Tell me now...what do you guys think of this? Too many colors? Too many scallops? Just right? Hmmm...Question

So, Diane LaPointe was the only one to share a link back to her blog with a card that she created yesterday. I'll be getting the very cute push pins and cat's eye out to her by Friday. Thanks for playing along Diane...your card is adorable!

I have lots on my plate again today so I'm off to get a couple of things done before Kyler gets up. Have a great Wednesday!
