Crafting By Designs - Guest Designer!

I have some exciting news for this post.  A while back, one of my cards won a challenge at Crafting By Designs.  In addition to digis from the challenge sponsor, Milk Coffee, I was asked to be a guest designer for this week's challenge which is lace/doilies.  Woo!  I love playing along with the challenges at Crafting by Designs and being inspired by their talented DT, so it was an honor to be asked to join their team this week.

I chose another of the sweet images Wendy Burns creates over at All Dressed Up for my card.  This one is called Happy Christmas Little Star.  I was able to crop out the sentiment and create a birthday card.  I just love these papers with the image.  A quick stop at Michael's and a package of 4" doilies from the baking aisle gave me the doilies for the card.  I popped on some rhinestones, added a sentiment and ribbon and the card came together.

Head on over to the Crafting by Designs blog and play along with the lace/doily challenge.
