Today I worked with a new Cheery Lynn Doily that I have not used before. It is the "Oval Doily Stacker One" doily set (DL183). There are three doilies in this set plus the plain oval which I used for the sentiment. I really like that these are stacker doilies and you can use just one or even all three. I used the two smallest for this card. My card is 5.5" by 6".
The background design paper came from the Echo Park "Dots & Stripes" paper pad. The flowers were created using the Cheery Lynn Stacker Flower #4 (SF4). Two flowers were used for each single flower. For the stamens I used the PunchBunch "Medium Sparkle" and cut down the center of each point to make it "frilly". I used two in each flower. The sentiment is from the new JustRite stamp set "Spring Rose Medallions". It was stamped on the center oval from the doily set and sponged around the edges. Three Kaiser Craft pearls were added under it. The leaves were die cut using the Marianne Leaves (LR0156) die. The green "filler" behind the flowers is the Memory Box "Leafy Branch" (98292). To finish the card I added the new Spellbinders corners from the "Lattice Accents" die set (S5-106).
As you know, all the products I use can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
Joan and I are very excited about all the entries for the Guest Designer's Blog Hop on May 15. It is fun viewing all your beautiful cards with flowers you have created. It is going to be hard to pick winners. You have until 6 AM tomorrow to get your card entered.
