Kraftin kimmie challenge -scoopy scallops

This is my card for the final February challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie.

 I love this Cinderella stamp and have had a ball trying to acheive the shading I wanted on her gown. I've stuck to shades of warm grey with just a touch of red on her shoes and earrings. The image has been sitting coloured since Sunday but I just could not decide on the layout and papers for the card. I was at Glasgow SECC yesterday at the hobbycrafts show and bought various different backing papers but still couldn't decide so here I was again waiting til the last minute for inspiration When it did finally come I was well chuffed until I realised it was lacking a small detail SCALLOPS! which was pretty important as it was the theme of this weeks challenge. So pulled the card to bits (luckily the glue wasnt dry) and good ol' Martha Stewart came to the rescue, phew!
Anyway hope you like her and keep your fingers crossed for me as I have entered their guest designer for April competition but as there are some very talented crafters around  Im not holding my breath
Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate it.
Bye for now
