Timeless Tuesday ~ Dainty Doilies

Howdy all! Time for another fabulous challenge at Flourishes... the Timeless Tuesday Challenge!

This week the fabulous Judy is our hostess and she is challenging us to...

...to create a card or project where we use doilies!
You can use an actual doily or a die cut doily shape.. whatever you have on hand.

For my card I decided I wanted to play with blues!  There is something so rich and beautiful about blue hues.

To begin, I cut a piece of "Kevin Burlap" blue and "Evening Surf" blue cardstock from the "True Blue" Color Made Easy Cardstock collection.  I stamped all of the beautiful blooms from the NEW "Chrysanthemum" stamp set using dark blue ink.  Then I took my Periwinkle Letraset Aquamarker and outlined each bloom.

Then I die cut a circle form Flourishes' Classic White Cardstock and stamped m sentiment and more blossoms from the "Chrysanthemum" stamp set.  I inked up the edges of my image in the die using some Ranger "Tumbled Glass" Distress Ink.  Before adhering it down, I added some of my favourite ribbon, White Seam Binding and a spot of bling.

To finish off my card this week, I cut more "Kevin Burlap" blue and "Evening Surf" blue cardstock from the "True Blue" Color Made Easy Cardstock collection and stamped a few more Chrysanthemum images and a quick sentiment on the inside.

Super fun and easy to make!  For further challenge details, please visit the Flourishes blog HERE.
