Cheery Lynn Designs - Doilies

Good Morning :)

My card today is for our new challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs and this week we want to see Doilies on your creations.  There is a fantastic $20 coupon for the winner to spend in the Cheery Lynn online store, so well worth playing along.

I used a stunning doily die from our New Releases called Notre Dame Cathedral .  I knew when I saw this doily that it would be perfect for fantasy images and oh wow does it cut crisply - its fabulous!

I stitched Prima papers to American Crafts white textured cardstock before layering and sticking to a 6 x 6 card base.  I also used the same textured card for the rest of die cuts and it worked beautifully.  After adding the doily, I criss-crossed the centre weave of the stunning celtic chain border - (officially my new favourite border!), and added some leaves to the corner.

I then created the carnation using the Build a Flower #2 carnation petals and leaves.  I cut approximately 16 petals, inked the edges and then just  scrunched and layered them adding the leaves lastly and securing with a white brad.  You can create endless types of flowers with these dies and they have such impact.  I stamped my greeting on one of the Sentiment Frames and for the finishing touches I added some beautiful Mini Dimensional Butterflies and white pearls

All dies used on this card are:

Doilies make such elegant additions to your projects, so I hope you find time to enter our challenge this week.  Dont forget there is always fresh daily inspiration from the rest of the talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog.

Terrific Alison - I'm itching to tangle that Celtic Chain Border. The flower echoes her dress beautifully with the inked edges & your soft colouring is perfectly embllished with the pearls & white die-cut elements. The doily is gorgeous with her wings & I love the way you kept the whole soft & muted with the lovely patterned paper.
