DeNami Simply Scallops Bloghop

 Hello, and welcome to this stop on the De Nami Simply Scallops Blog Hop.
You should have arrived here from the very talented Sue Lelli's BlogSue happens to be a very dear stamping buddy of mine and in addition to being a wonderful stamper, she is also a super person who uses her stamping talents to benefit the community through various projects. 

If you happened here by chance, and would like to start the blog hop from the beginning, you can go to The De Nami Blog.

For my card, I used some  bird images that I purchased years ago.

I have used these birds many times over the years on several different types of cards, as they are pretty generic.  For this card, I stamped and embossed them in silver on blue textured cardstock and layered them on silver cardstock which was cut out with a scalloped die.  I added more scallops with a border punch.
I cut two strips with the border punch and overlapped them. The silver around the outside edges of the card was done with a silver marker.

Your next stop on our blog hop is Tenia Nelson's Blog.  Enjoy!
