Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Sensational Scallops plus Color Throwdown!

Happy friday!  Today is Papertrey Ink's Blog hop featuring sensational scallops!  It has been a loooong time since I was able to participate in in a blog hop with PTI and almost equally as long since I've played with the gals over at the Color Throwdown!


Here's what I came up with....
So where are the scallops you ask???

I decided to use a scalloped circle die by Spellbinders to create a felt rose flower.

After die cutting the scalloped circle, I spiral cut the circle using a waving and random cut.

I started by rolling the outside edge of the spiral upon itself in order to build the flower from the inside out.  Once nearing the center, I applied Fabri-tac and finished rolling the flower all the way to the end.

This is the bottom of the rolled flower ready to be capped with the remaining circle of attached felt.

The bottom....

Once complete there is a nice dimension to the flower.  The height depends on how thick or thin you cut your spiral in the beginning.

I adorned the flower center with yellow sharpie colored Want2Scrap white pearls and added some pearl beaded trim I had in my stash which extends off the edge of the card.

Wow!  Check out all the different textures!  I love the contrasts and compliments in the ingredients of this card.  Especially the GORGEOUS die cut from Spellbinders Fancy Tag 2 set!  I would like to say thank you very much Spellbinders for your gorgeous products and I look forward to pairing up Nestability dies with Want2Scrap custom bling starting April 1!

So thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  If this is your first time by I wish you a hearty "Hello" and for those returning, "nice to see you again"!  Have a great friday, friends, and I'll be back later tp share the latest challenge from the Just Us Girls DT tomorrow!

Saaaahhhwwweeeet!!! That rose looks so soft & cuddly, I'm wanting to go curl up under cozy blanket with a good book...funny how seeing a texture can zip you off in a completely different direction! :>

Love your scalloped rosette & doily...2pts! :>
