Feel Better

Back today with, you guessed it, another card using doilies.  I saw the beautiful inspiration photo for the Our Creative Corner Challenge with so many beautiful flowers; the catch is you can't use flowers on your project.  Yikes!!  I then found a sketch at Inkspirations Challenge #81.

The Delicate Doilies stamp set was calling my name, again.  What could I do with it to use all those wonderful colors in the photo.  I stamped the image on
a piece of Glossy White card stock with VersaMark and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  Using the Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink and Rich Razzleberry markers, I colored in the doily.  After rounding the corners of the image layer, I laid it aside to work on the card.  The card is a 4-1/4" square.  The base is Pink Pirouette textured card stock.  To a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock I added a strip of the Pink Pirouette horizontally and a strip of Melon Mambo vertically.  Old Olive ribbon was added.  Old Olive brads were matted with a small circle of the Pink Pirouette card stock and added to this layer.  The whole layer was then attached to the base card of Pink Pirouette card stock.  The image layer was adhered using dimensionals.  Pearls were added to the center of the doily for a little added pizzazz.  The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink under the image.  Having made this a get well card, I decided to also submit it to the So Shelli monthly challenge; the topic this month is to create something letting someone know you care.  I hope you liked the card today.  Why not try some of the great challenges that are out there in blog land.  They are great, especially if you hit a mental creativity block.  Enjoy the rest of your day.

Wow, Patti! I love the gorgeous colors! I would say that this card has the essence of flowers...without using any flowers! You are so creative!
