Doilies and Lace

Today's card uses a mixture of a new stamp set, Delicate Doilies, and the new Lace Ribbon Border Punch, as well as the new color Lucky Limeade.

I started with Whisper White cardstock, followed by a layer of Pink Pirouette.  To this I added one strip of Lucky Limeade that was punched with the Lace Ribbon Border Punch.  Next I added a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock and two silver brads.  The stamped circular image was then punched with the 1 3/4" Circle punch, and then layered onto the large scallop circle.  Did you notice how the Idea Book and Catalog tells you what punches go with your stamp sets?  This takes a lot of guess work out of what to use.  My sentiment was punched out using the Decorative Label punch and I added some sponged Lucky Limeade ink around the edges.
