Hi everyone! My guest design gig is still going strong at Card Mania Challenges and I'm back this morning to share my inspiration project for CMC #56 - Use A Doily. Come play with us! We're being sponsored this time by the amazing A Day For Daisies! We want to see your project with... you got it... a doily! I absolutely love doilies - I have them all over my house because my dear mother made them for us girls throughout the years. What keepsakes they are, and I hold each and every one of them near and dear to my heart! ;)

I chose the darling ADFD Talking To The Moon digi for my birthday card. Isn't she just the most precious little thing?! I fussy cut the image with my Silhouette and adhered it to a large circle die cut matted on a scalloped circle die cut, both also cut with my Silhouette, which I chopped off even with the right side of the card for an interesting look.

Of course I added a doily along with a rectangular stamped and matted frame and filler element on which I stamped the Celebrate sentiment. 

I kept the inside simple, as I often do, stamping only Happy Birthday and matting the background on some Pearl Metallic cardstock.

So happy to enter my Celebrate card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock; Marco's Venicelux Gold Metallic cardstock; Marco's Venicelux Pearl Metallic cardstock; Marco's Antique Linen Ivory cardstock; DCWV Mardi Gras and Bozo cardstock from the Reds multi-stack
  • GKD Garden Tour 6x6 papers
  • Talking To The Moon digital image from A Day For Daisies
  • Copics: E01, R00/83/85/89, Y06/17, YR18
  • Clear Wink of Stella
  • Circle and scalloped circle Silhouette cut files
  • GKD Frame and Filler stamps
  • Memento Espresso Truffle
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Bo Bunny doily
  • Yellow Prairie Bird Boutique wrinkled ribbon
  • Champagne flat-back pearls and pink gemstones

That's it from me this time. I hope you're inspired to play in our Use A Doily challenge this time! And be sure to check out all the fun digital images in the A Day For Daisies online shop! I haven't seen one yet that I didn't just love! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
