Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #46

Greetings, all!

I really like the sketch for this week's challenge:

Of course, it cries out for those delicious new doily stamps, but it is way too soon to expect mine to arrive so I had to get creative.  Here's the result:


I sort of made my own flower doilies from Spellbinders Pinking Circles and the heart and flower images in Waltzingmouse's Sewing Box - Hugs set.  The "doilies" were adhered directly to the background paper along the outer edges, but popped up on foam dots near the center of the card, just to add dimension.  The sentiments parts were curved to match the doily elements.  The ribbon is Stampin Up stitched ribbon, but although the color was exactly right I thought the stitching was distracting, so I pulled out the threads.  The rest of the supplies/tools were as follows:  
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Ranger Antique Linen distress ink
Paper:  DCWV Linen Closet 4 x 6 stack
Embellishments:  tiny buttons and thread

That's all for now, thanks for looking!
