Scallop circle card

I saw one too many adorable circle cards and it pushed me over the edge. I just HAD to try it myself! Ah, the power of stamping peer pressure! ;)

I love how the colors came together, but the card as a whole is still a little "iffy" for me. The rhinestone brad is throwing things off for me, but let me tell you why it's there. I finished the card without the brad and was quite happy. That was, until I went to stand it up for a photo. Because of the wide grosgrain ribbon bow, the card rolled over on it's side! Well, that wasn't going to work for a recipient if they want to display the card. Can't have a lopsided card now, can we? So I added the brad for some weight to offset the bow. I guess it's ok, but it's just not quite the same. Let me know what you think...

It's a great card Marilyn. May not be quite what you'd have gone for but better that the card stands up :-)
