This is the one I ended up using for my controlfreaks swap. Love the brightness of it, so warm and summery (is this a word??) I did add a row of piercing just above the scallops to give it a little more detail. The ribbon was dyed using the Tangerine Tango reinker and a little water. I put a teaspoon of water into a sandwich bag and added some reinker until I felt it was dark enough. I added my Very Vanilla wide grosgrain ribbon, closed the bag and smooshed and smooshed to completely color the ribbon. I laid it to dry on a paper towel and it did come out a little lighter on the one side but I think it looks cool!!!
I stamped two one sheet wonders with the flowers in Summer Sun, Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point and cut them to 2 x 3 1/4. I used a 1/4″ circle punch to punch out the middles of some of the flowers so the different colors would show through. A fire circle rhinestone brad adds a little bling and the embossed greeting really stands out. Of course, the scallop edges are made with the NEW Scalloped Edge Punch and you can order it in two days!! WOO HOO!!!!!
I will be home late tomorrow!!! See you then. 🙂
