Tropical Party 411

I got my new big shot oval scallop frame die and was excited to see stamping 411 sketch challenge this week had an oval for main image.  So I excited, I played along twice and just flipped the sketch for this first one.

I used same stamp set for both-  from Stampin Up-Tropical party from Summer mini catalog.   I was struggling to figure out what to do for scallop part, what color to use for scallop portion.  I ended up just using the same piece of confetti white and sponging celery classic ink on it then stamped the palm image in old olive- no waste!
