To Be Fond of Dancing. . .

Happy Saturday! Today's post is another entry in the Classy Cards n' Such challenge #21- Vintage Hues, using three colors from their posted image, and the 6X6 Elementals Doily stencil available in their shop.

I started out by spritzing the doily stencil on a sheet of silver gray card stock using the Tattered Angels- Patina spritz.  I then fussy cut around the doily shape and adhered it to the card front using a permanent adhesive. I then attached a strip of sheer pink two-toned ribbon and a strip of lace ribbon vertically on the card front.  The sentiment label was pre-printed on a sheet of  12X12 scrapbook paper from the Dear Jane collection from Die Cuts With a View.

I popped up the sentiment label with foam tape to give the card dimension, then attached a piece of silk ribbon tied in a bow to the top of the label. A butterfly die from Hot Off the Press was then cut from metallic white Neenah card stock and a background of pink.  It was then attached to the sentiment label with pop dots.  I left the wings loose so they would wiggle in the breeze.

 I hope you all had a wonderful day. The weather was wonderful here in So. Texas. Spring is on it's way, but at least one more shot of winter is expected tomorrow.  Stay happy!

  4. This is a lovely card - great looking doily. That is truly fussy cutting! By the way, you have a lovely blog.

  5. LOVE you gorgeous card Mindy!!! So soft and pretty, you did the inspiration photo perfectly!! I can't wait to see your flower entry!! I wish I had time to sit down an entire day and do nothing but the flowers, as they say, practice makes perfect, and I need all the help I can get...LOL!! Thank you for joining us at CCNS!!!

  6. I like how you sprayed the doily then cut it out as a pretty background that didn't overpower the rest of the card. I like the entire card and especially how the ribbon "floats". beautiful!
    hugs, JMC
