Loonie Stamper's Challenge #117 - Doily

The Loonie Stamper Girls continue to throw down some great challenges and create amazing cards for them.  This week, the challenge is to use DOILIES (not dollies!! hehehe). 

I wanted to play along and went for my large paper doilies, then remembered that I have a bunch of Martha Stewart doilies left from my flirtation with Christine Middlecamps inspiration (you can see versions HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE).  Then, I remembered that I actually had a doily all decorated up waiting to be put on a card (if you visit often you have already seen it but now you get to see it on a card).  A bit of a 'cheat' perhaps but you all know how I am trying to use up all the stuff in my scrap bins and half finished item bin. 

So, I grabbed some lovely K&Co. designer paper, stitched around the edge and inked it up.  Then I added the white grosgrain ribbon (from my friend Jessica G - thanks Jessica!!).  Finished off the easy card with this pre-made embellishment.  See that butterfly ... it's an iron-on ... you know, those things you iron on to your jeans.  Sentiment if from Mixed Messages (Papertrey Ink).  I took a photo from the side so you can see how layered the embellishment is. 

Now, off to see what all the Loonie ladies did with doilies (not Dollies Wendy!):

Thanks for dropping in.  Now we are off for a Friday night supper.
