Mojo Monday 180 Scallop Circle Card

Stampin up mojo monday big shot scallop circle card
This week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO180) let's you decide.  Round or Square.  I opted for round since it's out of my comfort zone but ended up a delightful foundation for pretty paper things!

It's an honor to be the sketch designer this week on Mojo Monday.  Thanks, Julee T!


  • Stampin up mojo monday beautiful wings embosslits I'm on such a Crumb Cake "bender" lately.  I even used the Crumb Cake polka dot pattern from the Neutrals Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack.  If you like simplicity in pattern, especially smaller patterns for card making, the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Stacks are the "bomb!"
  • Sew Cute!  A needle and linen thread combined with a Paper Piercing Tool and Paper Piercing Template (Stampin' Up! Mat Pack) evolve quickly into a cross-stitch accent.
  • Glimmer  Brads (Glimmer Basics) add some serious pizzazz to the bird and butterfly.  The champagne color looks dazzling with Crumb Cake.  Perhaps it was the glitz of the Oscars that influenced me 🙂
