Salmon scallops!

Hi there!

When I saw the challenge theme "FISH" at Casology this week ... I thought ...oh no! I will sit this round out! What were they thinking???

And look at me now! A second fishy inspired card in one day! This one not so literally as the first one... I used a scalloped (or scales if you wish!)  background, cut with my Silhouette, and used salmon colored cardstock.

I am also entering my card to the flourishes timeless-tuesday  scallops challenge!






Thanks for visiting me today!

LOL! I love this - the precision placement of your scales is amazing! Thanks for playing along with us at CASology, even when you don't like the cue card! (that really makes me giggle!)

Okay. This is absolute genius, Hannelie! I LOVE how you took it to the next level and went outside that literal box!!! On a "scale" of 1-10, I'd give ya a definite 10!!! :)
Thanks so much for joining us again at CASology!

Clever idea and nice card! Looks like "salmon" colored scales--fishy, I'd say! Hee! :)

WOWZERS! This looks Amazing! Right away I thought of fish scales, even before I read your post. I LOVE the salmon with the gray bg. Such a classy card! So glad you played along with us in the Timeless Tuesday challenge this week! :)

Wow - GORGEOUS color combination Hannelie! Grey + any color is such a hot trend right now! Love the textured paper and in awe of your absolutely perfectly spaced 'scales'.

Giggled to myself when I thought another great punny sentiment could have been "Carpe Diem" ... as in the carp fish :)
