Scallops, Punches & Pastel Chalks

Managed to find some time and motivation for a little cardmaking today.
My first offering is a simple floral design where I have been practicing using a corner punch to create scalloped edges as an alternative to decorative scissors.
Also used my scalloped circle punch for the main image ... (I'm determined to get my money's worth from that little investment LOL) ... which is mounted on foam pads for a little dimension.
Added some matching floral paper as a strip on the inside to show off the scallop, popped on a greeting and some little turquoise gems and we're done.
Simple but pretty result.

Next I dug out the Dovecraft chalks and had a play on an embossed card from my stash. Added a pretty flower with a little brad to a stamped greeting, on another scalloped circle, and lastly I popped some gold glitter around the border and in the eye of the embossed flowers.

Feels good to be tinkering with my stash again.
