Scallops, flowers, and chalking inks -- Oh my!!

Well, my Labor Day was spent laboring (happily) over my card for the Cricut Cardz Challenge #40!!  I've been thinking about this card ever since the challenge was posted a few days ago...  I just couldn't wait to get started!!  The challenge was to use scallops from any Cricut cartridge I chose...  So my scallop borders (and leaves) are from Accent Essentials...  I wanted to use scalloped flowers too, so I cut some of those from Walk in my Garden -- I cut a bunch of other flowers too! :)


I especially enjoyed distressing the edges of EVERYTHING with my new Creative Memories chalking inks (which are the absolute BEST and COOLEST chalking inks I've ever used!!)


I went a little 'bling' crazy :) adding all those gold-colored gems to the centers...  And if you look closely, you'll see that I added one layered flower to the inside to make it extra special...


This challenge was a BLAST!!  I can't wait for next week's!!  I'd absolutely LOVE to hear what you think of my Scallop-themed card project, so please leave a comment...  And please view all of my other projects here...  Thanks for visiting!!
