Hello, Doily

Hi stampers!  Have I ever mentioned that I like...I mean LOVE background stamps?  Well I DO and when I saw the Hello, Doily stamp in the new catalog I knew I had to have it.  Which, just like the set, is funny because I hate doilies.  I'm serious when I say that I may judo chop my mom if she tries to put any fugly old doilies in her new house when she gets it:-)  However, she COULD totally hang this card up in her house and I'd be ok with that.....

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Hello, doily, pursuit of happiness
Paper:  Whisper white, island indigo, pool party, calypso coral
Ink:  Island indigo and calypso coral markers, pool party, versamark
Accessories:  White EP, scallop circle and circle punch, basic pearls

OMG!  Isn't it purty?    Now, there is a bit of a funny story here about why I have two cards.  Normally I make two identical cards but when I was stamping the doily the other night I totally stamped it in the wrong spot from where I wanted it on one of them.  Oh well....it still works:-)  I think I like the one of the right better though.

I used the Colour Q color challenge from this week as a jumping off point and this card just kind of took on a mind of it's own.  I made a number of cards yesterday and THIS is my fave!  The sentiment is from Pursuit of Happiness and I love how it combines different fonts.  This one just begged to have the happy colored in calypso coral to make it stand out!  One more detail is that the circle of island indigo was heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I LOVE the contrast!

Anyway, I haven't done any stamping today yet but I did get my office and closet cleaned out!  We'll see what happens!  Happy stamping!
