Trendy Thursday: Offset Scallops

Easy to put together and pleasing to the eye, I've seen this trend on several websites and in crafting magazines.
Offset scallops can be created with circles just as you see here with 1 1/4" circles. I used a several shades of blue to create this look. Starting at the top, I placed each row then glued in place before overlapping with the next row.
The sentiment is stamped and embossed in Not Quite Navy craft ink on Vellum card stock which had been die cut with the Matchbox Bigz XL Die. That Bashful Blue Satin Ribbon is no longer available but Marina Mist Satin would be just as pretty! I attached the vellum to the ribbon with a Mini Glue Dot behind where the A and G intersect. Sneaky, huh?

I think this one is perfect for the Moxie Fab Offset Scallop Gallop Challenge!

Take a look at the card stock and elements listed below:
