sc143 Baroque Scallop

Sorry the pic is smaller. I forgot to change the size before I uploaded it but you can click on the pic for a larger view.

This is for todays sketch challenge on SCS. I struggled to get this card finished. It didnt quite come out the way I wanted but Im pretty happy with it. I wanted to use my new baroque dp and hodgepodge hardware. Well I didnt get to use my HH b/c the card started getting too busy for my taste. The card base is river rock. I layered the baroque dp on choc chip w/ a 1/8" border. I used my ticket corner punch I havent used in forever on this card too. You can see it in the pic but I pierced along the corner of the choc chip layer. The strip of choc chip measures 1 x 5. I stamped the baroque swirl in river rock and tried to shadow it w/old olive. I stamped the small flower w/always artichoke and used my ticket corner punch. The swirl image is matted on old olive and measures 2 1/4 x 3 1/4. The main image measures 3 x 2 3/4 and is a choc chip and old olive layer. I used my ticket corner punch again on the old olive layer and put brads in the corner notches. I stamped my baroque in old olive on vanilla and punched it out w/my scallop punch. I stamped the small flower in river rock and cut it out and placed a jewel in the center. The small flower, the scallop, and the choc chip layer are all up on dimensionals.

Well out worst time of year began last night! They fired up the peanut mill last night and already I have a sick child. Madison ran a temp of 102.5-106 last night w/chills. We are heading to the Dr this morning. I HATE peanut season! I give Alana 2-3 days before we are doing around the clock breathing treatments.
