Hello Doily Dynamic Duo

This week at Dynamic Duos the challenge is to use Black and More Mustard.

I had a marvellous idea - which didn't eventuate - sorry! LOL.
Instead I ended up with this card.
As we can substitute colours if we don't have the exact ones I thought Summer Starfruit was a good alternative.

(click on photo to enlarge)
I used Summer Starfruit, Basic Black and Very Vanilla colours.
The Hello Doily Background stamp was stamped in black on both plain Summer Starfruit card stock and Sweet Sorbet designer paper. I then cut it down to meet in the middle. The Summer Starfruit piece was cut out around the edges. I embossed the doily with embossing powder.

I placed a piece of crochet trim lace under the edge of the designer paper doily, between the two doilies and popped a Flower shop flower stamped in Summer Starfruit on top. Seeing I was going "vintage" I added a Very Vintage Designer Button on top and coloured the centre in with a sharpie.
The Thank you is from Gifts of Kindness, punched out with the word window punch and then cut the end into a banner shape.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my card today. I love hearing from you. Thankyou for visiting. Vx

p.s. I was wondering to myself how I have managed to do so many cards and challenges this week when I happened to glance down at my floor. Then the light bulb came on!
I have forgotten to do the housework this week!!! LOL!
So that is where all the spare time came from. haha.
