Challenge #140 - use a doily

Hello - it is now time for the last challenge this year at


the lovely sponsor for this challenge is:

The beautiful stamp I got to play with was:  Mail call

Stichy bear have a big variety of digital stuff in their shop and since you can win nice prizes from them this week it is a good idea to join this challenge and visit their shop too and get to know them better, that is what I think anyway so I really hope you join us for this time you can be so creative because you have to:


Yes check I have done that ;)

A small doily I got from a friend who wanted to clear out the linen closet of thing never used so it ended up on this card insted of being forgotten and neglected in a dark closet.

I have colored the stamp with distress ink and have blended it with water and painted it on a aqvarell paper.
The card base are a sheet of craft cardstock folded in 15 x 15 inches and a small piece of patterned papper makes the sentiment on the card with a ribbon tied around it. 

The ribbon came on a gift so I do not know the manucatur but it is a silk dotted ribbon easy to find in any sewing shop or scrapbook shop.

The items are stapled to the cardstock to avoid fuss with glue since I have bad experience with glue and doilies before...

A close up, like to add a grey shade to the image to make the girl pop out a little bit.

Here you can se my stapled elements just a very easy way to fastend things to cardstock..

So thats all from me today and hope to see you joining our challenge this week and a very happy new year to you all anyway!

Lots of love from
