Inspired by Pinterest

I've set a goal for myself to actually attempt some of those amazing projects I have pinned.

My most recent find was a doily made with a corner punch.

Isn't it gorgeous? I found it here. {Go there for the tutorial.}

I used my Cricut to cut a 5" circle and then went to town with my Martha Stewart deco fan punch.

I didn't think to snap a picture of it before I started assembling my card,
but here it is on the finished project . . .

It worked and it's FABULOUS!!

It just so happens that Sugar Creek Hollow is having a challenge this week
to create a vintage, shabby chic, or primitive card using die cuts or punches.

You know I was all over that! Here is a close up of the layers . . .

I used two dies from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Blossom Tags & Accents set on top of my doily.

I printed the sentiment and cut it out with a circle punch.

I also used Spellbinders Shapeabilities Butterflies and a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.
A spray of pearls, ribbon, and a simple rolled flower finish it off . . .
