Cheery Lynn Designs - Doilies

Hi and Good Morning - I hope everyone is having a fabby week so far!
My card today is for our new challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs where our theme this week is 'Doilies'.  As always the lucky winner will receive a $20 coupon to spend online at the Cheery Lynn Store
Cheery Lynn make the most amazing doily dies!  There are so many to choose from, all with a really different feel from traditional to fantasy, and all gorgeously intricate.
My card uses a 6 x 6 inch scalloped card base, and I layered some freebie papers onto white American Crafts cardstock and coloured a cute Mo Manning image to match.  I used the classic French Pastry Doily die, and added a strip from the Mesh Border die chopped down to size to make it narrower, and edged at the top with a strip from the Expandable Tiny Border dies.  The bottom part of the mesh strip is finished off with some red gingham ribbon and the Lady Kate Edger border tucked underneath to make a sweet frilly panel.
The flowers were so quick and simple using the Daisy Strip and look really bright topped off with red card candi.  The digi-sentiment was cut out with one of the lovely sentiment frames and I added a couple of red brads, pearls and a charm to finish.
All dies uses on this card are:
I hope you find time to join in this week and you still have lots of time to enter.  Dont forget there is always fresh daily inspiration from the rest of the talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog.
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

Super the way the cheks of the both the ribbon & your patterned paper are reflected in the mesh strip with the squares morphing into diamonds. The red & white colour combination is delightful with her blond hair.
