A Doily Easel Card for JAI 81

Doily Easel Card - Colour Challenge - JAI 81

If you don't mind me saying, I'm super pleased with this colour combo that I chose for Just Add Ink's 81st Challenge. The colours are really pretty together.

Stamp Set - Creative Elements
(Release date - September 1st)

I decided to go all 'girly' and use a Doily Die that I had bought at a Craft Fair earlier this year. I attempted to make an easel card using the die but the pattern was too intricate for two thicknesses of card stock so I attached two separate doilies to a Very Vanilla Circle Easel Card base.

I layered the flowers and butterfly and popped a dimensional in between each layer.

Project Recipe for Doily Easel Card -

Stamp Sets: Creative Elements, Just Believe (sentiment)
Ink: Cajun Craze, Peach Parfait, Bashful Blue
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue, Cajun Craze
Accessories: Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Basic Jewels - Pearls, Blender Pen, Dimensionals, Victoria Crochet Trim, Peach Parfait 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon, Little Leaves Sizzlits Die
Non-SU: Doily Die

I hope the colours inspire you to join in with this week's challenge at Just Add Ink. The Design Team's examples are just gorgeous, as always, so hop on over and check out all the loveliness and link up your own entry.
