4 Square Scallop

***This idea is from the Nov/Dec issue of PaperCrafts Magazine on page 78.***
I just wanted to show the versatility of a Sketch, the original idea of this was actually a baby card with a lion, elephant, tiger and monkey in the squares and although I liked the idea of the sketch I wasn't crazy about the animals but who knows that could change. Anyway I decided to go with this fall themed card and I had the perfect stamps to fit right inside the scalloped squares. I used Mini Monograms to cut them at 1 1/4 then I shadowed them with the orange color (marigold from Bazzill) at 1 3/4, I used some patterned paper from the DCWV Rustic stack, brown is chocolate from CTMH. I used my scallops and dots border punch from Martha Stewart to add a fun edge and finished it off with some yellow/gold ribbon from Michael's. I love how these turned out, so much so that I made more...

This one I switched the paper and the stamp set and used some sheer pink ribbon.This one I switched the stamp set.Here is one more using the Close to My Heart booking set for December '09 and some Die Cuts with a View paper.
