Less is More Week 113 - Lucky Dip - Scallops, CAS Colours and Sketches #19

Scallops! That's the challenge at Less is More this week - to use scallops on your card.
I was tempted to go with one of my all time favourite dies; Die-namics Simply Scallops medium die but instead I played it subtle and went for a Fiskars border punch to cut three scalloped edges for this card in pale pink, hot pink and teal;

Stamps: SU 'Fabulous Florets', Personal Impressions sentiment
Embossing Folder: 'Swiss Dots'
Punch: Fiskars 'Scallop border' punch
 
Because I liked the layout so much I decided to replicate the card using the three colours in the in this week's CAS - Colours and Sketches challenge of daffodil delight, raspberry ripple and bashful blue. I didn't use SU cardstock but I think my colours are very similar. Personally I prefer the pastel version but my 9 year old liked 'the brighter one' better.
