Decorate with a Doily

Angie over at has Paper Cupcakes challenged us to make a card and to decorate with a doily.  Now that is my kind of challenge, I love doilies.    I stamped with  a Stampin' Up stamp called,  "Hello Doily".   I stamped with Versa Mark on white card stock and used white embossing powder.  I cut out the doily and attached my dogwood cupcake, which can be found with the Paper Cupcakes link.  I paper pieced my ribbon, added leaves, rolled roses and added decorative corners  to finish up my project. Now if you would like to go over to   There's Magic in the Air and take a look at the other fabulous cards my team mates have made, here is the link for that.    We would love for you to join us for our challenge and see what you do with your beautiful doilies.  You do not have to use a Paper Cupcakes image for this challenge, but your chances of winning is greater, as your name is put in the drawing an extra time.  If you would like to purchase a image from Paper Cupcakes, Nina  usually always has a special on our There's Magic in the Air blog or you can go to the Paper Cupcakes store and choose your own image.

Thanks for stopping in to view the Paper Cupcake challenge.

The challenge blog may not be posted at the regular time this evening as Nina has been without power since 6 A. M.  Sunday morning.   She will get the blog up as soon as the power is restored.
