Flirtatious Doily {CCMC192}

Hiya friends and welcome to another week at Create with Connie & Mary! It's a sketch week and the gals have a fantastic sketch for us:

Oh, how I love circles so I was all over this one the first time I saw it!  I used a lot of circular elements in my otherwise fairly clean and simple card:


My inspiration is straight from the colors and patterns in the Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The main panel is stamped with Hello Doily in Wisteria Wonder, then topped with a laser-cut doily and a Melon Mambo rosette--both from the Flirtatious Specialty paper.  The catalog will tell you that Pumpkin Pie is the color in this designer paper but the laser-cut doily is a shade lighter and a much closer match to Peach Parfait.  So, the main panel is matted with Peach Parfait to pull together the colors.


I used the same colors on the inside, Wisteria Wonder, Melon Mambo & Peach Parfait, stamping randomly with images from Delicate Doilies and a matching sentiment from Petite Pairs.  There's actually more stamping on the inside of this card than the front, LOL!  Well, I hope you like it and find yourself inspired to play along with the rest of the Design Team.  Be sure to check out their amazing creations over at Create with Connie & Mary and if you decide to join us, please link up your crafty goodness by Wednesday, March 14th at Noon (EST).  I can't wait to see what you do with the sketch!

This is a great card! Love the doily stamp with the lolly. It's too bad we can't mail beauties like this! You could send it to me! LOL!

Nance... wowzer! What a spectacular card front! CAS with a big punch. The colors are great and cheery too. The lacey dollies, lolly go together like bread & butter. Love it. Hugs.
