Doily Challenge

Cindy Haffner is April's CCEE Stampers challenge hostess and she has challenged us---and YOU---to add a Doily die, or some lace on your card, or both if you like!!  I don't own a doily die so I bought white paper doilies at my local Hobby Lobby and sponged this one with Buckaroo Blue, edging it with a Night of Navy marker.


The butterfly image is from Butterflies are Free by Rubbernecker.  I stamped it with embossing ink and then heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.  I watercolored the butterfly with Red Jasper Twinkling H20.  The center of the butterfly is blue Fine Cosmo glitter by Stampin' Up.  Here's a close up of the butterfly.


We hope you'll play along with us.  You can get all the details and see Cindy's, Joanne's, Shirley's, Tosha's, and Frances's fabulous creations on our CCEE Stampers blog.  Now....go get busy and let us see what you've got!

Not just another Thursday but another month - where does time go!!
Your sponged doily looks wonderful, especially with the dark edging round it, and the beautiful butterfly looks poised for flight.
