CropStop's Challenge #39, "Dainty Doily"

This week's challenge on the CropStop Challenge Blog is, "Dainty Doily" We want to see doily patterns on your creation.



I wasn't crazy about this card when I started it, but I sure love how it turned out! The burgundy bow looks so rich and elegant against the background colors.

I started with white cardstock and swiped some Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink across it. Then, I added the CTMH, "Simple Memories" doily stamp with Versamark and dusted with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Powder. Next, I did the same with Ranger Tea Dye Distress Powder. Finally, I used CTMH Cranberry Embossing Powder . I embossed with my heat gun after adding each color. The stamped white cardstock is matted with Bazzill and Craft Paper cardstock.
The sentiment is stamped with Just Rite's "My Rainbow" set and CTMH Cranberry Ink on Bazzill cardstock. I used Spellbinder Classic Scalloped Oval Small and Spellbinder Classic Petite Oval Large Dies for the sentiment tag and matting. The leaves are Prima.
