Absolutely Fabulous!

Well now I hope my Followers don't fall off their chairs! A CARD!! Yes - so far I'm sticking to my New Year's Resolution! YAY!!!

This card is for the Colour Challenge on StampTV, which was Pink, Brown and White. I used the Caardvarks New Year Kick-Off Challenge, with an exclusive sketch by Becky Fleck for inspiration.
The scallops are hand-cut (shapes made with an eggcup in lieu of a punch LOL!!) The top paper is Basic Grey Bittersweet, and the bottom is SU designer brown stripes. The base is Creative Memories cardstock. The ribbon is actually very thin pink stuck onto a brown side-stitched ribbon, with Kaisercraft flowers and Chocolate Pearls to finish.
 The Label is made with Nestabilities - Petite Scalloped Ovals, small, and Petite Ovals, small, and the sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink set Mixed Messages.
As the scallops are hand-cut I'm also including it in the Scrap and Stamp Cutting Challenge, and the colours also fit right into the Etsy Inspired Challenge - the cute little Muffin Tote is Pink, Brown and White!
Oh... and as it's for a friend who's just found out she has a little bundle on the way, I guess that counts as a "New Beginning" for the Stampin' for the Weekend" Challenge!

Thanks Janice for your help in getting me motivated and into the swing of challenges!!

I'll be back soon with - yes!! - another card!!
