The Scrapping Cottage Challenge #4

Unable to sleep as I listen to the crazy wind outside . . . leftover remnants of Hurricane Irene.  So why not work on another challenge (while I still have electricity! 

I absolutely LOVE the Cottage Cutz Scalloped Doily.  What I especially love is the open space in the middle, as it's perfect for a stamped image, sentiment or both. 

I love navy and yellow together, so I decided to use some leftover scraps from a previous card for this sketch design.  I pulled in some navy cardstock for my card base, and cream cardstock for my doily and one border (as well as the inside of the card). 

My original design had all the holes poked from the doily, but I preferred the look with the pieces still intact, so I cut another doily.  It gives it a certain tone on tone elegance rather than having the bright yellow and dark blue showing through.  

I used the "Grow March 2011" stamp set from Pink by Design Stamps.  Love that it has outline and fill stamps! 

A simple, fun design.
