JustRite Friday Challenge #100: Delicate Doilies

I seem to be on a 'yellow' binge with my creativity lately, so I just went with it for JustRite's 100th Challenge -- WOW -- I first took part in Challenge #005 in February 2010 and have rarely missed any since. It's been really fun and hope it continues for a long time!

I decided to make a large half-fold card (8 1/2" x 5 1/2") for this challenge in order to use the entire large oval doily from my stash. Beginning with a white card, I die cut the bottom edge as well as my layer of yellow dot paper with Spellbinders' A2 Bracket Borders One. After attaching my doily, I stamped a border from Celebration Labels One & Bracket Borders One in Moonlight White Brilliance Ink to finish off the bottom detail.

Next, I inked Spellbinders' Floral Oval Die #3 with white ink and embossed it into a black oval -- I LOVE the 'blackboard' look this gave my focal image and border. Lace Medallion Labels stamped in Moonlight White on black CS is where my tiny 'lacy' butterfly originated. He's finished off with wire antennae and three tiny pearls. For my sentiment I combined Grand Sentiments and Celebration Labels stamps on a yellow oval die cut with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and accented both ovals and doily with pearls.

Using Spellbinders' Bitty Blossoms, I cut a white coffee filter and spritzed with Tattered Angels Sunshine Glimmer Mist -- just love the soft color and shimmer (which sadly never shows in photos). My flower and simple seam binding bow finish off my entry for JustRite's monumental 100th Challenge.
