CARDS Magazine Doily Challenge!


Happy Monday, Friends!


Hope you had a great weekend – mine was pretty quiet and uneventful due to a little bit of a stomach bug.  But I’m feeling much better today, and am off to crop with friends.


Doily Challenge


Thought I’d share a card I made yesterday (while hubby was at a “Boys Only” Super Bowl Party) for this week’s CARDS Gallery Challenge, which is to use doilies in your design.  I adore doilies; in fact, I’m just plain OBSESSED with doilies, and own them in many forms – doily stamps, paper doilies, rub on doilies, chip board doilies . . . you name it, I’ve got it.  So I was thrilled to pieces to see that Paige’s new challenge asked us to include doilies in our design.  Especially since I haven’t played in the CARDS Gallery Challenges in quite a while.


I used a paper doily that I recently got from Ellen Hutson and trimmed it to fit the DP (new Memory Box design called Brioche).  I added a ZVA pearl flourish for some sweet drama.  The stamped image is from Round & Round, the 2009 Limited Edition set from Papertrey Ink.  This was the first time I inked that baby up, and it felt good!!  The ribbon is Spring Rain from PTI.  I didn’t add a sentiment on purpose . . . it’s nice to have an all occasion card around just in case, right?


That’s it for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by today – have a great day!
