Doilies & Dies

This week the challenge at Sweet Stampin' is "Doilies & Dies". When I think of doilies, I think of girly and that's a topic I live for. Give me ribbon, lace, flowers, pearls, rhinestones...   This wonderful image is by Sarah Kay.

I used the following dies: Magnolia border, Spellbinders oval, Cheery Lynn leaves and large doily and La-La Land. I used punches by Nellie Snellen (the daisies) and a $1.00 punch from Michael's (the yellow flower in the center of the daisies). I used a paper doily, brads, lace, pearls and ribbon from my stash. I colored the image with Copics and added a few stickles here and there. This card is 6"x6". Here's a close-up of these two cutie pies.
