Cindy Haffner, host of the most recent Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, challenges us to use scallops.
I loved Melissa Phillips's recent inspiration photo from A Creative Mint that included purple and orange, so I decided to go with that color scheme again for this card.

 The background is Vintage Wallpaper stamped in Orange Zest that I distressed with Antique Linen ink. The scalloped and embossed strip is also distressed with ink. The the crocus is stamped in Rich Cocoa and colored with Prismacolor pencils.

Hope your having a good weekend,

Stamps: Calendar Set 1, Vintage Wallpaper(Flourishes)
