Papertrey Playhouse: Second Chance Challenge

This challenge at Papertrey Playhouse is perfect to catch up on a past challenge that I didn't have the opportunity to participate in! We have the option of choosing from the past few PP challenges OR Papertrey Ink's last blog hop, which focused on scallops. I've been wanting to play with scallops and so here is my belated PTI blog hop card:


You can see that I ended up not even using the "real" PTI scallops... I felt inspired to use the new Edgers (this card uses Edgers #1). This is a scrap card! I pulled out a bunch of scraps and threw together a few that I felt went together alright.

Which left me with more little scraps that I used to make more cards...


The color's off in this photo but this is the basic idea of my scrap cards... So quick and easy to throw together in a pinch!

Beautiful creations Dana, the scallop card is spectacular! I probably could make hundreds of cards with all my scraps laying around, thank you for the inspiration!

Love the shape of the edge - a beautiful way to make your card unique. Simple, yet very beautiful. Thanks for all your kind words on my blog.
