One of a Kind Grandma

I have been a crafting fool lately and have been trying to participate in lots of challenges...they are a great motivation and starting point for me. Cath's current challenge over at the Moxie Fab World is to showcase doilies and/or lace on a project. Now this was definitely a stretch for me as I rarely venture into the vintage or shabby chic style but sometimes stretching ourselves leads us to wonderful things right?!

For this card I used some fabulous doily patterned paper from Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry collection. Then I used one of those paper heart doilies (that you can find just about everywhere around Valentine's day) to create the flower. I basically just cut the inside of the doily heart out and then worked the lacy edge around in a circle, cutting little slits in the center as needed to get it to form this little blossom.

I finished the card off with some Papertrey Ink buttons and stamp, fun pom pom trim, and American Crafts Thickers. All the doilies and vintage feel made me think that this would be a perfect card for a special grandma like mine! :)
