Lucky Dip. Use Scallops

As March is a month containing 5 Saturdays, once more we have a Guest Designer for our Lucky Dip Challenge!
We have chosen 
as our challenge and
as our Guest Designer.
Lizy has scarcely missed a challenge and is often the very first to submit a card each week. Her work is simply super and we're sure you'll congratulate her on being chosen.

 Please pop over to her blog and check out more cards Lizy has made using scallops for this week's challenge.

For this card, I dry embossed a scalloped Nestie square directly onto the card base and surmounted this with a square of card embossed with a Stampin' Up folder.
The butterfly is from Memory Box using some squished flower background for the base and plain white card for the top layer. I glued the whole of the base layer, adding the filigree top layer and covering the rest with Glamour Dust. The sentiment is computer generated.

Here is another Anniversary card. 
I used my new Fiskars interchangeable punch, bought at the NEC, for the daisy border, threading it with some ribbon. The card and ribbon were coloured using a Promarker. The scallop border and the embossing were done with Stampin' Up products. The little flowers on the sentiment panel were cut from the border punchies and once more, the sentiment was computer generated.


For my first card I used a hostess only set from Stampin Up and stamped it onto off white card in dark brown ink.  I then cut a scalloped edge using a memory box die.  It's finished off by stitching around the edge and some early expresso ribbon tied simply in a bow.  The sentiment is also from Stampin Up.

For my second card I die cut the base of a black card with a large spellbinders scallop die.  This is then mounted onto a strip of dp from Stampin Up.  It's finished off with some ribbon and a simple tag sentiment.
It's quite an easy challenge this week, so we'd love to see lots of lovely scallops from you all!
