Hello, Doily Wedding Wishes

Today's card was inspired by a Becky Roberts design.

I just love the Hello, Doily stamp.  I have used it to make birthday, thank you, sympathy, Christmas, and wedding cards.  It looks great stamped in classic ink, or heat embossed with any of your favorite colors. 

My card base of Whisper White cardstock was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  Next a layered a piece of Island Indigo cardstock , and then another piece of Whisper White.  I stamped my large doily using Island Indigo ink, and stamped the additional flowers from the Just Believe set in Basic Black ink.  For added embellishment I added a Basic  Black Glimmer brad, some 1/2" Basic Black Scallop Dots Ribbon which was turned over to the solid side, and an Itty Bitty Punch of Island Indigo Designer Series Paper.  The pearls in the top corner were actually added to cover up an ink smudge when I stamped my sentiment.  I always tell the ladies at my monthly stamp classes that there is usually a way to cover up your mistakes, and if you don't tell anybody they very rarely even know it.
