Sweet Williams and Cheery Doilies

Hi there!  I've got a couple of cards to share tonight!  
The first one is for the sketch challenge at Christian Paper Crafts.  

I used a sheet of pale blue card stock from Archivers.  I embossed the background with a folder from the Cuttlebug Preserves collection.  I added a border punched with and EKSuccess punch.  I stamped the Sweet William from ODBD twice and heat embossed with white powder.  On the top flower, I cut each petal to give it more dimension.  To create the center, I used a scrap of lace in my stash, rolled it up and secured it with glue.  Then I added the pearl!  The lace and ribbon along the border is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I made the bow with my Bow Easy tool!  To complete the card, I sprayed it with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.

Here is a close up of my second card!

And here is the full card:

I just got this great new doily die from Cheery Lynn Designs!  So pretty!!  After cutting it out, I used a stylus on the back to try to give it an embossed feel.  I added the EKSuccess border at the bottom.  I stamped the sentiment from ODBD Mini Tags Three and cut it out with a Spellbinders circle.  Then I added Martha twig around the center, Martha Hydrangea flower around the doily, lots of pearls and finally a pretty little white bow I made with my Bow Easy.  I sprayed it with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist to finish the card!

That's it tonight!  Thanks for visiting and I'll see you again soon!
