I bought this designer paper called "Pretty Poppies" (made by Autumn Leaves) mat stack at Michaels on sale. I've been wanting to use it and this just seemed like the right time.
Below is a closeup of the Happy Birthday circle that I wanted to show off. When I first saw the inverted scallop Spellbinder Nestibilities dies I didn't think I'd ever use them. BUT...oh boy was I wrong about my initial negative reaction. There are a lot of creative things you can do with the inverted scallops when paired with other Nestibilities dies. See?!? I used black cardstock on the inverted scallop circle and then a regular scallop circle in green to form the mat behind the Happy Birthday sentiment. Cool, eh?
