For Mother

Here's my card for the monthly ODBD challenge for OWH stars and stamps. This month the challenge is to use scallops. If there are enough participants, ODBD contributes shipping costs for 2 boxes of cards to our military, so grab your scallop borders and dies and come play along! Our deployed military will reap all the benefits!
I used a scrap of pink dsp from my stash, along with 3 shades of pink card stock and used a MS doily border punch to make the fancy scallops. The image is called "Woman in Repose" and is from Rubber Stampede. I stamped it on vanilla card stock using Versacolor sandy beige ink, then matted with the darker shade of pink and some soft suede. The sentiment is from Verve, and I scored the edges of the vanilla just to make it pop a little. Pearls are from Kaiser, and the ribbon is from my stash.

Wishing you all a wonderful day, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Great Mother's Day card or just a Mom card! I used the layered punched borders on a card just today too. Also for OWH, but it wasn't scallops, so I'll have to do another for the ODBD challenge!

The layers of scallops are so pretty and in pink they work very well for this mother's card.
