Dotted Doily Celebration

Good Morning my fabulous followers and friends!  I was cleaning out my sewing cupboards a few days ago and ran across a sweet tiny, doily I had purchased when I used to make dolls (yes, I've pretty much done it all in craft land lol).  Kaboodle Doodles has a wonderful challenge going to use a doily, so SWEET...here is my card:


The Card is my favorite size A2 - 5 1/2 by  4 1/4.  I loved  planning the card around the doily and I think is just turned out sweet as can be.   I used a new paper stack I purchased at Hobby Lobby called 'Antique Dots' by  MME (My Mind's Eye).  This stack is totally FAB!  So many dotted papers to choose from and I went with pink and brown.  Used Kraft and Coredinations card stock, Offray Organza Brown ribbon, a fabric covered button, The word 'celebrate' is cut using the Cricut Cartridge 'Straight From the Nest' and, of course, the crochet lace doily.   Inside I used a brown button, bakers twine and my own computer digi.   I am entering this card in the following challenges:
I love this blogger paper craft world and all of you for making me feel welcome! God Bless you all and have the best month of OCTOBER you've ever had!!  Thanks for stopping by! PS! Wahoo, this card won at Die Cuttin Divas!!!

Wow that doily is so pretty! It reminds me of the ones that my husband bought me in Crotia. He said little old ladies would make them and sold them for mere pennies. It's hard to believe because so much work goes in each one! Your card turned out so lovely! I'm so happy you shared it with us at Papercraft Star!
Kindest regards,
Jennifer

I can't seem to find the spot to become one of your followers, though! I tried clicking on "crafty followers" but I get nothing. Maybe something just isn't showing up on my computer?
