A Day Late...and a Winner!

Yesterday was a new Fabulous Friday challenge at Frosted Designs, but I held off on my post, since I was participating in the Blog Hop launching Smitha Katti's new Card Shoppe.  We have a great challenge this week and it involves a very pretty trend....DOILIES!  Who doesn't love a good doily on their page??!!  Our DT did some amazing work so make sure you go over and check it out.

I really struggled when I was putting this layout together.  I liked the sketch and it worked great for the Doilies, and I think the Studio Calico Heyday collection was the perfect color combo, but I just kind of got lost in what I wanted to embellish with.  They just kind of felt all over the place for some reason.  And even though I think it turned out pretty in the end, there is still something that just seems kind of off to me.

The Sketch I used is from Creative Scrappers:

Products Used:  Cardstock & Brads:  The paper Studio; Patterned Paper, Mister Huey's Spray Mist, Mister Huey's Chevron Mask, & Butterfly Stickers:  Studio Calico; Flair Button:  A Flair for Buttons; Doilies:  Hobby Lobby; Pearls:  Kaisercraft; Washi Tape:  Recollections; Letter Stickers:  Authentique, Pebbles, & Studio Calico; Punch:  Marvy

I also need to announce a Winner from yesterday's Blog Hop!!  Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment for the chance to win some cards from Smitha's new Card Shoppe!
