Scalloped Punches!


I got my new scalloped punches from Gina K! I wanted to use the hearts but wasn't quite sure what to do with them. I started and restarted this card numerous times! I threw a lot of paper away during the process! I had different stamped images on the hearts and really didn't like it with the paper I chose by Scrapbook Walls. I ended up leaving the hearts relatively plain. I stamped some small flourishes by Autumn leaves and added some iridescent ice to it. I distressed the paper with Chocolate Chip ink by SU! I pierced holes in each of the scallops. The sentiment is by Doodlebug. I added some glittery flowers and some pearl brads.....and after 3 hours it was done........whew!
