Tuesday Trigger!

 
Isn't this photo from Tuesday Trigger delightful? It's SO my cup of tea!
Looking through my stash, I seemed to be able to find stamps and inks that will be suitable for this Trigger. I ended up making two cards! (Yay, go me!)
thanks bunches #1
Here 's card #2
 thanks bunches 2
 Stamps: Remember, Small Solid Flower by Hero Arts, sentiment is from Fresh Squeezed Stamps
 
I thoroughly enjoyed creating these two cards. Just in case you are wondering what scallop border punch I used....well, I actually used Spellbinders Nestabilities (Big Scalloped Rectangles) to create this scalloped borders. Frustrated with the limited choices I have with the border punches, I resorted to this! 
Ding----> Remember to use the die cut to create borders! It's so easy!
 
 Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love the scallop die cut! The double scallops edge and bow on the second card are particularly eye catching. I really like the colors of your flowers and the way that they form a straight edge along the card. Your bling is perfect. These are gorgeous, Virginia!
