LOL! I'm so far behind that it isn't even funny!! BUT, I'm really trying...honest! So for this week's Blog Challenge, I'm almost on time! Ok, so it should have been posted by this morning, but....HEY! I'm close!!
The image on the right is the inspiration for this week's submission. As you can see, I turned it sideways and went from there. AND I finally had the chance to play with my new Sale-a-Bration set, Polka Dot Punches. If you are a punch fanatic, then you NEED this set! Each of the images in the set is especially designed to coordinate with various punches in the SU line. This flower image was punched out using the 5-Petal Punch.....which was also used for the "leaves."
The scallop circle background was created by using the larger of the 2 circles in the Scallop Circle #2 Die (Page 197 of the new SU catalog). Then the white layer uses the Coluzzel**.
This was a fun layout.....different from my usual, simple layouts. But, I have to admit that this was definitely inspired by this card here. Her card is just lovely, don't you think? Well, anyway, here's my version. There is a lot that is different, but obviously, still a lot that is the same.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Don't forget to check out the other Bloggers.

**The Coluzzel has been marketed by SU and made by Provo Craft but has been discontinued by the manufacturer. It is presently available in the SU catalog only while supplies last....which won't be for long! So, SU has come out with a new circle cutter. Haven't bought it yet....but I can't wait to get it. It's supposed to be FABULOUS! Be sure to check it out in the new catalog!
