Happy Holidays - Magnolia-Licious Challenge -Use Doilies

The challenge at Magnolia-Licious is to use Doilies and today is the halfway point and the turn of Team B to share their cards with you.
I went with an older image from the Sweet Rainbow Collection, this is one of my favorite collections, so many wonderful images in it, many that adapt to all sorts of occasions, the best type for me :)

Challenges:
QKR Stampede - Being to Look a Lot Like Christmas (3 entries only)
Cheery Lynn Designs - Tis the Season (and a CL die)
Creative Inspirations Paint - Christmas
Fashionable Stamping - In The Holiday Spirit (no digi)
Lovely Hanglar and Sweet Magnolia - Christmas is Coming
Robyns Fetish - Christmas Cards
Sentimental Sundays - Traditional Christmas Colors and a Sentiment
Sketchy Colors - Red and Green
Corrosive - Happy Holidays
The Ribbon Girls - Ho Ho Ho Christmas (and ribbon)
Created With Love - Christmas
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
4 Krafty Girlz - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes (3 entries only)



Card Recipe:
Image - Sweetie Tilda
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Seasons Greeting by Echo Park
Doily - Wilton
Doily Die - French Pastry by Cheery Lynn Designs
Felt Flowers - Prima
Paper Flowers and Leaves - Crafty City
Ribbon - American Crafts
Sentiment - The Paper Studio
Pearls - The Paper Studio





I used corrugated cardstock for the circular mat to add a little more texture and paper pieced Tilda's dress with the same paper as the die cut doily. I added a bought doily too, no harm in that is there? ;)
The big felt flowers add even more texture, definitely a card to be sent in a box or hand delivered, a bit big for an envelope but I certainly love how it turned out.
I hope that you have time in your busy Holiday crafting schedule to make a card and share it with us in our Doily challenge at Magnolia-Licious
