Magical Monday - Decorate with Doilies


Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.  We had some glorious winter weather here, so we made the most of the sunshine and got out and about in the garden.  Its such a wonderful time of year with Spring just around the corner and our garden is home to such a vast array of wildlife.  Throughout the day one part of the garden in particular is frequented by numerous birds coming to see what feed may have been put out for the lorikeets.  Wild Woodland Ducks, Galahs, Rainbow Lorikeets, King Parrots, Doves, Magpies, Cockatoos, just to name a few. 


In other parts of the garden including just outside our bedroom window (my cats favorite viewing point is here) we have the wrens, honey eaters, willy wagtails, fantails and peewees. It really is quite Magical to watch them all.


Speaking of Magic this week for Magical Monday's with Paper Cupcakes at TIMITA we want to see you decorate your cards with Doilies.  Whether it be a paper, a die cut or a stamp if it's a Doily we we want to see it! 


For my card today I decided to go with a paper doily and make a circular card using the doily as the background.  It's something a bit different to what you would be used to seeing here on my blog.  It was the perfect shape for the beautiful Mandelina (image) to adorn.  I have simply colored her with my Tria Markers.  

I created my circle card base with my Spellbinders die which I also used to cut out the frame and sentiment panel for the centre. I simply layered my Doiley over the green shimmer card base. For embellishment I used some green in a similar shade to my card base in the way of the ribbon roses along with some white paper roses and some blue rhinestones and coordinating green ribbon.  And every fairies wings needs a little glitter so I have added some Crystallina Kindy Glitz to  them.  The Sentiment is from Stampin' Up!

For more beautiful Doily inspiration be sure to pop over to TIMITA.  Don't forget if you join the fun of our challenge and use a Paper Cupcakes Image you have two chances to win.  To help you do just that Nina has the beautiful flower cupcake image available in store for just $1.
