Magnificient Maple Scallopped! PP164

Fall is here!
Nothing conveys that better than the Magnificent Maple stamp and
some Sweater Weather DSP.

You know I often do challenges to get me outside my box.
Today I joined in the Paper Players Challenge

Most of the time I choose straight lines......scallops aren't usually my thing.  
Typically I choose to admire them on other peoples projects.

Once I was into it...I really liked the scallops.
I used the Large Scallop Edgelit on the 7/16" trim.
A little help from my trusty Paper Snips completed the scallops.

After I stamped the Magnificent Maple and let it dry I used a pointy cotton swab to color in the middle with stamp pads.

I actually punched out a spot of the DSP,  punched out my Maple leaf and put it back in the scallop opening.  It makes for a very flat card.  
You know I always use dimensionals......but this card doesn't have 1 on it.

Turns out I didn't turn into a pumpkin, and I liked it flat!

A few leaves on the inside and WALA!  You are finished!
