Sketch Frenzy Friday-1-21-11--Back to MDS

Hi Stampers!

Well, once again I am back to using MDS for the Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge. Today's sketch was given to us by Melissa Hedine-Tootle, and I REALLY like it! Here it is:

With my interpretation, I had a little bit of difficulty deciding how to do the scallops in MDS. I don't know how Melissa did hers, but for mine I used the wide scallop oval punch overlapped to create the scallops. Here is my take on the sketch:

The card base is textured Old Olive cardstock with a layer of Whisper White on top. The scallops as mentioned before were created with the wide oval punch and colored Old Olive. The flourish and the sentiment are from the Baroque Motifs stamp brush set. I really don't use the Baroque Motifs set very often-either the live set or the MDS set, so this is a change for me. I colored the flourish Certainly Celery, and the sentiment is Early Espresso.

Not sure if you know this but there is a scallop trim border in MDS. But I love the look that you did. It turned out very elegant.
