My Project

I will be honest, I am still not convinced that I really like my card design.  However, I have chosen not to remake it (and save valuable supplies).  The biggest problem I have with my card is the hard edge I used on the lace paper doily.  While I am not sure about the hard edge, I could not find anything that I really liked to cover it or enhance it.

to create the card, I simply used a white card stock for the base, and then layered it with a light pink color. I added the wonder crackle paper by cutting a strip and trimming the bottom edge to  create the flag. I used a pink ink to highlight the edges to help it pop up off of the pink card stock.  I then layers the flag with a Wilton paper lace doily, which I trimmed in half.  I embellished it with some tiny pink flowers with yellow pearls for the centers.  I had some bigger ones in mind, but I did not want to distract from the beauty of Daisy's wonderful paper.  I further embellished the the paper doily with some pink diamond gems.   I completed the card with a small Thank You sentiment between the points of the flag.

Daisy has so many wonderful papers in her store. Please take the time to visit and pick out your favorites. I know you won't be disappointed.
