DV #194 Add A Doily and A Brad

Our challenge today at Dream Valley, sponsored by All Dressed Up, is to Add a doily and a brad.

We were given some lovely All Dressed Up images to work with and I chose, Pretty as Picture.

I coloured her in with Copics and then die cut her using a Little Darlings Pierced Oval Easel Die which I also used to diecut the tag for the sentiment.

I didn’t have any actual doilies, or rather I couldn’t find them so I used a lovely doily die from  and die cut that from Navigator white paper, which is also the paper I printed the image on and also diecut all the corners from. The corners are a die from Joycrafts, 6002/0356.

The butterfly brad has been in my stash for a very long time! I don’t use brads anywhere near as much as I used to so it was nice to have this challenge and remind myself just how many pretty brads I actually have!

The paper and blue/turquoise matting is from Fab Scraps’ Floral Charms range.
