Squares, Scallops and Sentiments!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! Here is my card for today's Holiday Extravaganza Challenge on SCS, HCE02, Squares, Scallops & Sentiments!! PH in VA (Patricia) challenged us with the following parameters:

It must be a square card. So long it has four sides of equal length, the size doesn’t matter.
It must have scallops on it.
It must have a sentiment on the front, and the sentiment must have 3 or more words in it. Let’s see those longer sentiments put to use.
It must have ribbon as an embellishment.
It must not have glitter on it. Rhinestones, PearlEx, shimmery embossing powder, etc. are OK if you feel the need for shine, but glitter and Stickles are not.

I need a card for my oldest and dearest friend's birthday, so I pulled out my Friendship Flowers set by There She Goes Stamps. I LOVE the choices of vases and flowers in this set!! My card is 4 1/4 Square, I added a scalloped border with Old Olive, my sentiment is longer than 3 words, I used some Old Olive Polytwill Ribbon and Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon and there is not even the tiniest bit of glitter on this!! LOL!!

The flower and vase were colored with my Copic markers. I first stamped the vase and punched it out with my 1 1/4 Inch Circle Punch. I then stamped the flower, colored it and cut it out and glued it to the vase so it goes *out of the circle*. Of course, I added a touch of paper piercing and some brads!! The paper is Georgia Peach DSP!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
