Damask and Doilies

My card today is based on the yummy colors of the Paper Players Challenge #63 and the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #220.

The card base is Old Olive card stock.  The doily from the Delicate Doilies stamp set was stamped on Whisper White card stock with VersaMark and Rich Razzleberry inks and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I punched it out with a circle punch, matted it with another circle punched out of Old Olive card stock and added an antique brad.  The sentiment from the  
Fabulous Phrases stamp set was stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock with Rich Razzleberry ink which was then matted with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive card stocks.  I ran a piece of Basic Gray card stock through the Big Shot with the damask texturz plate (hence the damask and doily title) and then spritzed on Frost White Shimmer Paint that was mixed with alcohol.  Two strips of Whisper White card stock were punched out with the Lace Ribbon Border punch and added to the bottom of      
the gray layer.  Old Olive ribbon was attached and the layer was added to the card front.  Dimensionals were used to add the image layer to the card.  I colored the Basic Pearls with a sharpie marker and added them to the corners of the image.  I really enjoyed both challenges; it's a great sketch and I love those colors together.  Enjoy your evening.
