A Sweet Surprise!



Hi and Good Morning Everyone, Alison here :) and back again today to share a card I made inspired by this weeks Cheery Lynn Challenge theme of  'Doilies'.

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.
