Just a note...

I remember when I was little how I loved lacy paper doilies!
Especially at Valentine's Day! I remember my Mom making a Valentine's Box for my classroom at school and there were doilies on it.
Once I helped my Aunt Zel get ready for a shower and we put a doily over the top of a cake and sprinkled powdered sugar over it, then when we remove the doily, there was a beautiful lace pattern on the cake.
The doily I used for this card isn't lacy, but it brought back lots of memories when I saw them in the store.
I bought a package on clearance, very cheap!
This is actually a Christmas doily, but I just thought it was a beautiful pattern that could be used any time of year.
I used some ATG tape to adhere it to a brown card base, then trimmed around the edges.
The "Just a note..." (#6405) is from
I embossed it with white embossing powder then cut to size.
The dash marks around the sentiment banner and doily were done with a white gel pen.
This is a pretty basic card that anyone could replicate.
How pretty would this be with a lacy white doily on a bright colored card base?!?!
Why not try it out and let me know how it goes?
Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Gorgeous. Love the faux stitching around the edges.
