Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #17

This is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #17. You can view it on her blog here. This was a great sketch but I had a hard time getting the inside of the circle completed to my satisfaction. This was actually my 3rd attempt on the circle portion. This card is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". Square cards are not usually my thing but they are growing on me.

I'm still loving the in-colors Groovy Guava and Purely Pomegranate together. They also look great combined with Soft Sky.

I cut the Guava circle out with my Coluzzle and sponged some Guava ink on it. I then used some scalloped scissors to make the scalloped circle on the outside. This was the first time I have used scissors to make a scallop circle. It took a few times practicing on some scrap paper but it ended up being fairly simple.

Thanks for looking.
