Twisted Thursday #10!!

We've got another fun Shirley's 2 Girls Twisted Thursday sketch challenge for you. And this is a good one!! This week's great sketch was created by Pat Dadisman, S2G design team member extraordinaire! Thanks, Pat!!

The "twist" this week is to ADD SCALLOPS. Easy, peasy, right?!! My sample for the sketch uses an image called No Place Like Home (SG 163) - the color scheme was the brainstorm of Deidre & Kristin, those wacky minds behind Shirley's 2 Girls. The design team was asked to create a project using the colors turquoise, marigold, lime, and fuschia. Sheesh!! They're not asking for much, huh?!! LOL Well, I had some DP that fit that bill perfectly!! Thanks American Crafts for saving my booty - as usual. You're not required to use these colors, but it sure would be fun if you did.

I really wanted to set off the smaller image of the house, so thought it would be fun to punch it out using a square nestability, and then pop it up through the hole from the inside of the card. There was a lot of punching, and cutting, and popping up, but I finally figured it out. And I must say, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. And how 'bout those blingy ruby slippers?!! This is such a fun image to work with.

We'd love for you to play along with today's Twisted Thursday sketch, too. Here are the rules:
