Hello Crafters,

   It has been a long couple of weeks for me as I was very sick, but thanks to all the prayers and good hands of the doctors I am back on the move again.  Will take a few weeks of lots of rest but I can do that and create also right.  I wanted to create a card for the Challenge over at:, this Challenge was to use black and white with dimension and scollops.  This is what I created.

I used a 6 x 12 piece of back card stock scored at 4 and 10 on each side of the front of the card I made double scollops half way down on each side and used the flower to help seal the front bottom. I used score tape to seal the bottom and added background using a stencil and gelatos to make the background of leaves.
I have to say I have had my gelatos for ages -my dear friend Dar told me about them and how great they were so of course I had to buy them. I wasn't as in love with them as she was until yesterday when I decided to try them on this card.  Now I love them too. The leaves turned out awesome. I added a scollop made from a Martha Stewart punch and added my embellishments and the sentiment inside. Can you see the little butterfly. Maybe on the other pics.
