Basic Grey (Phoebe papers) & Daring Cardamkers Challenges

Both the Basic Grey and Daring Cardmakers challenges this week are scallops. I have just done a round scallop card and a friend asked could I do her one, so this suited all three purposes.
I love the 'Phoebe' papers but have to admit to not finding them the easiest to work with.
I used magenta coloured card for the base, cut with the largest nestability die, leaving the top two rounds just off the die so they remain fastened together. I cut the centre piece with oval nesties and attached the flower with a pearl brad and a added rub-on sentiment. I decorated the inside of the card with more 'Phoebe' papers, a flower and a further rub-on sentiment.

Papers: Basic Grey Pheobe
Cuttlebug & Nestabilities
Flowers, brads and ribbon all from stash

This is my first visit to your spot in cyber space. Your creations are beautiful. In a way I agree with you that some of the papers in the Phoebe BG range are a bit awkard to work with, but once mastered its all worthwhile ... like your stunning creation here. Warm regards

Ab Fab card - but oh, you beat me to it! I planned to do a round scallop card today for those challenges - back to the drawing board for me 'cos I'd never make something as wonderful as this card. Well done!
