CCMC143-Sketch Challenge

The month of March is almost over, can you believe it! I can't wait to start digging in the dirt. I love spending time in my vegetable and flower gardens. Today's card comes from a sketch you can find at Create with Connie & Mary. I thought I would create a nice springy, flowery, butterfly card today. The sketch below is where my layout comes from:

The square scallops come from 2 sources, a Scallop Square Punch and the Scallop Square Duo Bigz Die:

All 3 scallops were lots of fun to layer and fill in. I did a little snipping with my Paper Snips to get a close cut to all 3 items that I hand-cut. Here is a close-up of the 3 items. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to make them "pop" off my card:
