Dainty Doily card

Hello, and welcome!

You all made me laugh at the comments you left, after Olivia's sewing party........and I have to agree, she is beautiful.....but then, I would say that, wouldn't I....?

Very quick post, tonight.....I've got half a ton of ironing to do....did plan to finish it this morning, but started to  sort through my fabric stash, know how that goes....haaaa!

I made this little card, was going to be a lot smaller (inspired by the gorgeous creation that Jayne, over at recently made), but these old eyes needed to work with something a little larger, heehee.......
As it is, it ended up at 4 inches x 4 inches...........and I'm on a mission AGAIN to use up a whole heap of my scraps........

Another very simple card............

The ticket is a freebie which I chalked lightly with pink, and added the pale green gem......

Folded the small doily around the spine of the card, added a pink journal spot, and popped a sweet embellishment in the centre......

The edge is cut with a Martha Stewart lacy border punch, and a strip of the blue paper is attached on the back inside edge of the card......hand-sewed a length of pale blue gossamer ribbon down the join of the two different papers.......done!

Told you it was quick....haaa!
