Don't You Love Doilies?

I love doilies. All kinds! Crocheted (which I make!), paper (which I hate getting apart when all the little pieces go everywhere), fabric, stamped. Today's SCS Ways to Use It Challenge was to incorporate doilies in your design.

 
I chose to use a doily journaling die cut for my doily today. My sentiment is from a set called Butterflies Are Free by Rubbernecker Stamps. I based my card off of one by Dawn McVey in the March 2011 CARDS magazine.

I have a lot of "extras" around - journaling tags, plain tags, chipboard, tons of embellishments that I need to be using up! So I tried to incorporate some of those on this card.

Thanks for taking a peek! I appreciate each of you stopping to share in my work. Leave a comment so I can return the favor! Have a good day~

I love those colours. They remind me a bit of the Basic Grey Blush, which was my all-time favourite. I like the scalloped layers and the big red flower.
