Creative Inspirations Challenge # 42 & Alphabet Challenge Blog

I've entered this card which I've made, into 2 different challenges this week. The first challenge was to make a card for Creative Inspirations Challenge # 42 which isn't square or rectangular, and the other challenge was the Alphabet Challenge Blog , the theme for this week is "S for Scallops". 

I found a design for making a cross shaped card, which you could use for Christmas or Easter, so I based my card on this. I cut it out of Lilac coloured card, and used 3 of my scalloped Nestability dies, cutting different coloured coordinated cards and layering them up to create a centre piece for the cross. I used some silver large and smaller gems to embellish the cross' centre, and then I placed gold border peel off's, which had a scalloped design to it, to border the card. I then stuck some straight border edging  peel off's to decorate out from the centre of the design, then  placed a pink gem at the end of each of these.
I have photographed my card, and this is pictured below. I hope you like it.
