WMSC#80-Dainty Doilies

I was so inspired yesterday by all the "sweet" goodness created for the Waltzingmouse Blog Party.  It's not too late to check out some really cute cards and sweet treats.  Here's a link.   I especially loved the beautiful colors used by many of the entries.  Today I made a card using one of my most recent favorite color combinations, gray and berry sorbet.  Here is this weeks sketch on which I based by card:
Where as many people who used this sketch saw long paper strips, I saw smaller squares in this sketch. 

I used patterned paper by Authentique, the Uncommon collection and used pinking shears to cut out the postage stamp patterned paper.  I layered it onto some smokey shadow cardstock and another long strip of Authentique paper in a really pretty damask pattern for the center band.  I used some dark peach velvet ribbon and some cream colored pom-pom ball trim.  The doily is stamped with Waltzingmouse Stamps Dainty Doilies Large onto Authentique paper with gray ink.  The sentiment is from Teeny Trees.  I added a rose, a twine bow and some tiny pearls for a little bling.  I love the vintage postal feel to this card.  Thanks for taking a look!

Sorry I missed this card Cathy. Love it! I agree the colors are great together. Love the way you used the pinking sheers to cut apart the stamps.
