Ok - so I learned a new lesson this week.  When designing sketches, make sure you have the tools to create what it is that you sketch!!
I don't yet have the rectangle scallop dies that I have been wanting, I didn't have scallop scissors that I could make work and the punches I have all make the corners turn out dorky.  So for my last ditch effort (I spent 3 hours last night trying to make scallops) I decided to draw the dang things on the card to fit the sketch!
I actually like how they ended up turning out, but it was a lot of sighing and wasted paper to get here!
All the stamps are from Hero Arts, Paper from DCWV, Red, white and black glitter, white and red fun flock on the hat and boots and the punch is from Martha Stewart.
