Hi friends and followers - thanks for popping by!
It's Lucky Dip Challenge Week at Less is More, and Chrissie and Jen would like us to use  SCALLOPS on our creations.
Although I do have some scallop dies, I decided to use some of my older, long-forgotten stash on this little card. It's great fun to re-discover things, and find a use for them. Anyway peeps - in case you're wondering - this is
supposed to be a couple of garden fences (with flowers) !!

The topmost fence was edged with a Fiskars border punch.
The small fence was edged with a pair of scallop scissors,
then snipped between the scallops.
The tiny flowers were cut with a VERY old punch - no maker's name - just a label which says "Made in Taiwan" - ah nothing changes does it!
Flower stems drawn with a black Pilot pen.
Fences layered onto a 5" square card with 3-d foam pads.
SU Linen Thread.
SU papers for the flowers.
Small tag punch - Woodware.
Hello stamp - Hot off the Press.

Happy Crafting ~ 
Hugs ~
