Doily and Flowers

For my design team post at My Sheri Crafts, click here or scroll down! 

 Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I found time to play with more pretty K&Company papers and wanted to enter a few challenges. The card measures 5" x 7" and is cut from white card stock. I tried fraying and a little curling on the patterned papers. Still working on a shabby chic look!
Cricut Cartridge:
Mother's Day Bouquet - The handmade flowers are Flower 8 on the cartridge. The image is cut at varying sizes from the pretty patterned papers including a newsprint paper. I enjoy using this cartridge for making flowers.
Spellbinders Nestabilities Eyelet Circle on the white card stock.
Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily for the purple doily.
Just Rite Old Friends Set on the sentiment.
White Crinkle ribbon and a purple Bucilla Ribbon Embroidery ribbon are used for the bows. Lace and pearls are from my stash. A tiny pink Jolee's Boutique butterfly completes the look!

Just Rite Inspiration - Ch. 100  Delicate Doilies - Add a doily-This can be any kind of doily.
Tuesday Morning Sketches -  My play on Sketch 205
The Shabby Tea Room -  Ch 173 - Glorious Flowers. Use colors from the following photo and include flowers, ribbon, and newsprint.
