Doily Bloom

It's been very shabby-chic around here lately {which is a good thing}, but I wanted to brighten things up a bit...

The Play Date Cafe has a lovely color story this week... so fresh and delightful.  
Here is their inspiration:

Can I just tell you how much I love lavender lately?


I used the bright colors to create a twist on one of Mona Pendleton's recent projects for Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I loved her layered doilies and was inspired to create my own "doily bloom".  I'm popping this over into the CASE Competition at WMS... check it out, you'll be inspired!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Dainty Doilies (large & small), Say It Loud; PTI - Sending You (leaves); Patterned Paper: Echo Park Springtime collection; Cardstock: PTI - Vintage and Rustic Cream, SU! Kiwi Kiss; Ink: SU! - Kiwi Kiss, Purely Pomegranate, PTI - Hibiscus Burst, Memento - Tuxedo Black; Tools: Spellbinders Scalloped Circles Lg.; Sassy Somethings: PTI - Lavender Moon buttons and Simply Chartreuse saddle stitch
