I just love to make cards. It feels like I'm sending a paper hug with every card I make:)

Sweet Stop Sketch #220
Here is this week's sketch at the Sweet Stop: and the spin is doilies!
Sweet 'n Sassy have a new release of stamps and dies for July, including a beautiful stamp set of doilies, plus a die set of two borders in doily style. Unfortunately, I do not own this set yet, so had to look around in my supplies to see what I could use for this challenge. I found a very old stamp set by Grant, of several medallions with interchangeable centres, which I thought looked like doilies - a bit! I cut out my circles from metallic cream card stock, using Spellbinders tear-drop circles nesties, and from white metallic card using Quickutz Doily circles nesties. I then stamped the medallions onto the circles, heat embossed them and then sponged over with Brushed corduroy Distress Ink. My background is the same cream metallic card, embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, Dots and Circles. A SnS large scallop border cut from Kraft, some real lace and a small tag from the Mini tag set, completes my card.
Now take a look at what the other designers have come up with for this challenge and let us see your own doily creation.
