Doily Challenge

The Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog challenged us to use a doily on our project.
I used a photo from Halloween at Sesame Place. Ben wore his monkey costume from last year. This was the first time we met Prairie Dawn.

I used my doily to make a lace border. I had a large circle doily in my stash. I cut out the solid center of the doily leaving about 1/4 inch where the lace part starts. I put a straight line of atg and attached the doily lace. It had large waves that I smoothed out into a nice ruffled lace.

You can't really tell from the picture, but the cream paper has white in the patterns so the white really does match. It looks off in the picture.

Thank you for looking. I hope you will join us at the blog. We always have a challenge going on.

This looks really pretty - I'd not thought of doing that! I also love the twine and the trim :)

That doily adds a lot of texture and dimension - nice!
