This card was made with three challenges in mind:
I used scallops on the bottom border, accented with flourishes from the Mat Stack 2 stamp set, and then scallops on my ‘lazy-crafter’s’ medallion/flower. I cut a Nestabilities scalloped circle from the DP and scored on alternate sides around the circle to create the medallion. I know it will likely get a little smooshed going through the mail, but I love how simple and cute it is, giving the effect of a medallion – at least for now!
I know the CR84FN challenge is for light pink – I hope my pinks here aren’t too dark to qualify. I was just so thrilled to use these patterned papers, because they are seriously old stash stuff. Actually, I think I bought that striped pink paper nearly 10 years ago when I first started making cards, when they were just a quarter sheet of cardstock with a block of DP and a computer-generated sentiment. I hoard craft supplies, holding on to them forever, thinking that for sure I’ll find a time to use them, regardless of how out of style they become, 10 years later. Yada, yada, yada…. I love when I am able to use my old stash supplies, even if it’s just a teeny tiny strip of it! 😉

I know I use that lace on every other card I create. I can’t help it!! I just love this lace – it’s my favorite. Sorry you have to keep staring at it day in, day out!
