It's All About Doilies and Pins

Morning Folks
Well, the weekend is finally here and the sun is shining. Let's hope it lasts for a little while.  Spent all week shut in an office so looking forward to spending a bit of time in the sun this weekend.  

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge.  I have chosen the theme this week and I have gone for something that I enjoy using on my cards but don't always manage it.
Use a doily and a pin

The prize as always is

2 individual digi images
(NO SETS, PERSONALISED WATERMARKS OR SENTIMENT SETS)
of the winners choice from PINK GEM DESIGNS.....


I used this cute image called Love Birds which is available here.  I used the precoloured version and decided to make a card for my hubby for our wedding anniversary which is on Friday.  I die cut the image and inked around the edges with some Tattered Rose distress ink.  For my doily element I used two square doilies that I had (love the square doilies). A square of patterned paper was added to the centre of the doilies and these were mounted in opposite corners of the card before adding some ribbon across the centre.  The corner dies are from Memory Box and the felt hearts were in my stash.  I did add some little heart buttons to the top of the felt hearts.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to A Gem of a Challenge to upload your entries.  You can also check out the rest of the design team's fabulous creations.
