Tuesday Trigger: Finesse the Dress Challenge

Hi, all!

Thought I'd try my hand at Paper Crafts' Tuesday Trigger. Today I created a card based on this beautiful dress...

The pattern of skirt and the scalloped edge caught my eye. LOVE the color combination and immediately thought of Authentique's Journey Collection! So this is my take on the challenge.

Wonder by Margie Higuchi
Supplies Cardstock: The Paper Company; Patterned Papers and Die Cut: Authentique Paper; Stamp: Unity Stamp Company (Authentique); Ink: Clearsnap; Die Cuts: Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (S4-314 Lacey Ovals, S4-110 Classic Ovals LG, E8-003 Classic Triple Scallop); Tool: ScorPal; Flower: Prima; Adhesive: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever); Other: Pearl and Foam Tape

So what do you think? My favorite part is the double layers of scallops from Spellbinders Edgeabilities® die template called Triple Scallop. Isn't gorgeous?! Love my Edgeabilities dies!

ETA: Where can you purchase these great die templates? I have a favorite online store, Scrap-Mart, and they offer FREE SHIP along with a discount on some of their items. Here is the page on Spellbinders Edgeabilities die templates! Just sayin'

Also a personal note...I received word that my aunt had passed away in Japan today. She was my father's big sister and lived a full life of 90 years! Although I didn't see much of her, she had always lent an ear when I needed it. I will miss her - this card is for her! Rest in peace, dear Aunt MINAKATA and hug my father for me! xo
