ABC challenge

My third card for the day is for this weeks ABC challenge which is "P for Pearls".
Again I have used some My Minds Eye DP for the side border and corners. The image is all time favourite Stampendous P107 stamped with versamark and embossed with copper, gold and pink which I added randomly. A tiny dragonfly has been stamped across the background with Brilliance orchid stamped off to achieve a softer finish (no source I'm afraid) and scrolls from Inkadinkado 97632 stamped and embossed in gold down the side. I roughed the edges with scissors and distressed lightly with Tim Holtz worn lipstick. The card itself has been stamped with Brilliance gold down the fold side with Penny Black 2642K.

I have to put my hands up and admit I pinched the idea for the part scalloped edge from Jules, but I did tell her that I might as I so liked what she did with a card at the weekend using this Fiskars punch. The corners are made from circles cut on Cricut home decor. Finally tiny punched flowers added to the main image, scallops across the bottom using the same punch and pearls to embellish.
