Certainly Bashful Breezes

Today's card incorporates Splitcoasts' Color Challenge which is Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Baja Breeze and the SUO Challenge which is a Mother's Day card.

I sorry to say that I can't remember whose blog I was on last week when I saw how they took a strip of scalloped paper and (by cutting triangles into the "base") enabled it to curve around a circle. I'm familiar with the process from my sewing background, but I hadn't thought of using the technique on paper.

I pulled the aqua painter out again today to colour the bouquet and the Paper Daisies.

Hope Tuesday was a terrific day for you - Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous card! You should enter it into the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge for this week. They're doing a Mother's Day theme too.
