Green Doily with Aqua and Cream

Today's card was inspired by Dawn's challenge on the Papertrey Ink forum, to make something inspired by this lovely photo on Pinterest.  I chose the photo's aqua, green, and cream for my colors, and those intricate china patterns reminded me of doilies and lace.  Thanks, Dawn, for a fun challenge!

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) aqua mist, ocean tides (muted teal), new leaf (green), vintage cream, and the bitty dots print from PTI ocean tides pattern pack.
  • Dies are PTI wonderful words: thank you, Parisian lace doily, and loop de loop.  Note: the "thank you" is cut from ocean tides, though my monitor makes it look a bit like the green.
  • Embroidery floss is DMC ecru (cream) and 703 (green), tied in a square knot. 
  • The vintage cream panel is edged with Copic marker BG72.

Very pretty! I love how you have the loop-de-loop die peeking out...it complements the doily die too.
