PTW Making Waves

Not my usual style but I was reading a thread on the Do Crafts forum today about stitching. The thread linked to a tutorial on this blog, which inspired me to make a card without using a rubber stamp! I struggled so much with rubber stamping at first, I think I almost made it an rule that I had to practice everyday and now it seems to be all I do.

This weeks PTW challenge is about using scallops and/or Zig-Zags. I really enjoyed doodling the borders and the flower petals.

I also chose paper and cardstock from my scrapbox, something Hubby is always encouraging me to do (he knows it is only delaying the inevitable stash shopping but it keeps him happy). I did get to use the Flora Doodles from Joanna Sheens site though so it's not all bad lol. I can't say I like the centres very much, they remind me of an old throat soother but the flowers are gorgeous and they come nicely packaged in a sweet little box which is just right for altering.
