Diggin' on doilies

The other day we went with friends to a nearby village for a lovely lunch - we are very grateful to them for taking us - we enjoying good food and good company and afterwards even did a spot of shopping in one or two of the little shops. I bought a pack of red and white spotted doilies because I liked the look of them and thought I might be able to creative something with them. Then I remembered that I'd seen a challenge that had something to do with doilies - Moxie fab world: 'diggin' on doilies & lace'.

In fact, I couldn't find the challenge until I looked again this evening, otherwise I would have also done something with lace - that will have to keep now till another challenge.

I loosely used the sketch given for Don't waste your Thursdays 25:

It's also for:

Crafty creations 59: 'spots and dots'
Creative card crew 46: 'going dotty'
One stop craft 72: 'let it shine!' - the card and the black gems

I'm deliberately showing the effect of the flash photograph on the black card because it gives an idea of the metallic sheen, which catches the light as you move the card.
