Manhattan Flower Impressions and a Ruffled Scalloped Edge

I've been going through the box of new goodies I received when I returned from my trip to my MIL Wednesday. I couldn't wait to get the Manhattan Flower embossing folder, but I was busy cleaning house yesterday. As my reward for getting lots of cleaning done, I was checking all my favorite blogs last night and came upon this card by Julie Buhler. Wow! is what I thought, I have got to try that! So I did and let me tell you it looks great in person! Then I wondered what it would look like in another color and since I had just read my Stampin' Success and saw that one of the card contest categories was using orange, I decided to try it in Tangerine Tango.

I also ran across a tutorial from Jan Tink on how to make a ruffled scalloped edge that looked intriguing. I needed a card for the demonstrators meeting on Sunday using new items from the mini. I thought the flower pot from Wagons of Fun might fit inside the wide oval punch and discovered that it did, so I thought why not try this ruffled scalloped edge around it. Now I have something new to share with the group.
