Pearls and Lace

Welcome to day three of my card making extravaganza. Today's card incorporates the girliest of girly items - pearls and lace. I love doilies and have several from various trips I've been on so when I saw the Bella Doilies set I knew I must have it. And lovely doilies they are.

I wanted the doilies to take center stage so I embossed them with clear embossing powder on white cardstock and then rubbed ink on the stamped image. The effect is perfect for these dainty images. The pearls and ribbon add a little touch of elegance to the design, as do the subtle blue and tan colors.

I also enjoy mixing and matching stamp sets. The sentiment I used is from the Wonderful stamp set and while it works well with the scalloped bird stamp, I like that I can use it with other stamps equally as well.

Remember, I'm doing a drawing at the end of the week for stamps from Unity Stamp Company (they are kindly allowing the winner to pick two Itty Bitty stamp sets). So leave a comment on any or all posts this week until midnight Friday to qualify for the drawing. And check back tomorrow to see a set of tags incorporating Unity Stamps.

This is so pretty. I'll have to remember to use those doily stamps like this. It's a much cleaner look than spraying over a real doily as a mask. Thanks!
