Diggin' on Doilies & Lace....

Cath is having another great challenge over at Moxie Fab- using doilies & lace!
These are 4"doilies, and the top 4 have been glimmer misted & folded into quarters and adhered to the white bottom doily. I added a white flower that I had crocheted & topped it off with a yummy Jenni Bowlin button. The card base is PTI lavender moon, stamped with tin types (using versamark) and the sentiment is from damask designs (stamped in fresh snow & heat embossed with white embossing powder). I added some 1/4" May Arts silk ribbon & a Jenni Bowlin pin. This is the first time I've added a pin- I love them & have a couple different kinds, but have been hoarding them!! Hooray for using loved items!!!




Head over to Moxie Fab to see other lovely uses for doilies & lace!!!
Thank you so very much for stopping by- let me know what you think!!! :)
ETA- I see Betsy Veldman has a post about making your own flowers- this is similar to what I've done with the doilies- I folded mine back & forth (if that makes sense) for more ruffle....

  1. *THUD* Give me a minute to pick my jaw off the floor. This is absolutely STUNNING! It looks totally vintage. It's a gorgeous birthday card, but how great would this be for a new little baby girl?! Great job my friend. You totally rocked this challenge.

  5. This card totally took my breath away. Love the colors and the layer and well, everything about it. So sweet! I had attempted folding doilies and they made it to the trash can and not a card, oh my, this is just simply stunning. All your creations are fabulous, but this one has got to top them all. And congrats to you for using something you've cherished-now someone else will be able to cherish it on the card itself.

  6. Beautiful! I love the pink doily. You can so make those pins. They are just earring parts with beads attatched...then glue them in place. Easy! You can have whatever colors you want. :)
