DeNami Simply Scallops Blog Hop!

DeNami January Blog Hop
Hello!  Today I am so excited to be participating in another DeNami blog hop.  As you can see, scallops is the theme.  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!  So fun!  I want to say welcome to all the "hoppers"!  If you came from the blog of Ruza Rebel, you are on the right track!  If you want to start from the beginning or if you get lost along the way, click on the Blog Hop Badge above and it will take you back to home base.  Now, let's get to my card.  Last year at this time, I purchased Mimi in the Rain, and the card I made, I just wasn't crazy about.  So, I knew I wanted to use this stamp again and change all that!  Plus, her umbrella has upside down scallops, which is a perfect start!  I continued with the scallop theme in the papers I used, and the border punch elements.  Go scallops!  I love my card and I hope you do too!  Here it is ... enjoy!

Paper - Clouds and circles by My Minds Eye Love Me Do line, Scallops by Colorbok (from patterned paper pack I got at Target), Cardstock White, Teal

OH! Great minds think alike! I used that same Mimi stamp for my card! I love that cloud background, and your muted colors are gorgeous! That's my favorite thing about card-making. You can give people the same stamps, but they'll come up with such amazingly different finished products! Beautiful work!
