Show us your scallops at Crafty Ann's

Hi there folks, sorry i've been so quiet lately. Its so annoying when work gets in the way of important things like crafting isn't it? Its time for a new challenge at Crafty Ann's Challenge blog though and this time our theme is 'Scallops and/or Fancy borders'

I've used Crafty Ann's beautiful 'Bird on Blossom Branch' for my card, its one of my favourite images and you can find it here in Crafty Ann's Digi Store. I've coloured the bird with promarkers, cut out with a nestie and added some tumbled glass distressing around the edge. The bp is from the Prima Madeline papers, cut with a scalloped border die. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the brown velvet ribbon is from my stash. I've added one of Crafty Ann's fab ticket sentiments for a finishing touch.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments: punches/die cuts
Delightful Challenges: things with wings
Little Red Wagon: use a bird on your project
Make my Monday: birds or bugs
Sentimental Sundays: flowers plus sentiment

Thanks for popping by, if you get chance do check out Crafty Ann's digi store as she has some wonderful metallic frames, papers and images! They are brand new and she has them on special offer at the minute so you get 2 for only 75p, bargain or what??
I've been so busy at work i haven't had chance to play but hopefully i'll get some time at the weekend to use them as they are FAB
