Doily birthday


For this card I've followed the sketch for The craft's meow for January:


I have a subscription for Papercraft Inspirations monthly magazine and I keep meaning to cancel it - only got it in the first place because there were some useful goodies if you joined - anyway, every month that it arrives I think 'Oh well, perhaps I'll keep getting it' ... today it arrived and there was a free pack of doilies - three different sizes, so I thought it wouldn't be extravagant to use all three sizes on a card. The lovely patchwork background paper had been in my offcuts box for some time - can't remember where it originally came from. It is a shiny paper (you can't tell that here). The felt flowers have been in a pack on my work surface for a couple of weeks or more and just seemed to be crying out to be used with the patchwork paper. The epoxy hearts and sentiment from stash.

  18. This is so on trend, with the patchwork background. The doilies look superb and I often see things on my craft table that have been there for a couple of weeks and then suddenly cry out to be used.
