Use a Doily!

Good morning!  We have another challenge for you at Ruby's Rainbow...this fortnight my teamie Ellie Wee would like you to use a doily on your creation.  Sounds like a great challenge, right?

I knew I wanted to go with a Breast Cancer Awareness theme and pink...the doily seemed to work well with that.  As I was looking for my DP, I came across some scraps from one of my favorite paper collections...score!  I knew I wasn't going to mat the image panel, because I wanted to show as much of the doily as possible, so I printed the image on white CS so it would "pop" against the cream background.  I embellished simply with ribbon, a handmade felt flower, and some Swarovski crystals.

Image: Saturated Canary "Boobie Love"
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Vintage Cream, and Sweet Blush, My Mind's Eye DP
Embellies: SU! Pretty in Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Light Rose" 
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, PTI Doily Die, MFT Royal Rose and Royal Leaves Die-namics Dies, PTI Vintage Cream Felt, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos 

Please head over to Ruby's Rainbow, check out the doily creations, and play along!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Emergency Crafters: Recipe; use 1 from each group: Glitter or Gems, Ribbon or Flowers, Die Cut Shape or Sentiment
Fashionista Challenge: Anything Goes
Graphicat Sketch Challenge: Sketch
The Poodles Parlour: Anything Goes
