Card for Unscripted Sketches 03

Here is the new sketch from Unscripted Sketches ....



Here is my card...










I know, I know the sentiment is not straight and it is BUGGING me...but apparently not enough to go downstairs and fix right now. It was stamped with a rubber stamp....and....I have to say, I am spoiled with my clear stamps!
The card is a 6x6. I used CTMH's Perfect Day PP . The center is a doily I picked up at the grocery store the other day ..ha ha...My 12 yr old DD looks at me and says knowingly...."you are going to use that for a card aren't you!" , as I stand there with them in my hand...sigh. I bought ones that are waxy coated sadly so they are not easy to color or add ink to.
I stamped many versions then cut out a circle of Colonial White CS and stamped my image on that. I used gold Stickles to accent the stamp.
I learned this today....it is very hard to make a circle freehand with Stickles LOL
The stamp set is CTMH's You've Got Flair and will be one of their SOTM from the Summer catalog. I colored it with CTMH's markers....Juniper, Tulip, Sorbet, and Creme Brulee.
I decided to decorate the inside of the card with more of my doily practice runs..
I hope you are all having an awesome Saturday. I was all prepared for a day of working in the garden....then it rained! So I decided to go to my spot and create.....BUT it was such a mess I cleaned it up for about 2 hours. Then I managed to do this card.
Enjoy!

Beautiful card. I didn't know paper doilies came in a waxed or unwaxed. Sounds like something I would do.
