A doily card

A sweet little card made with a Crafty Secrets stamp.
The card is cut using the Gypsy. I used a pre-scored card and the Gypsy is perfect to allow you to position precisely where you want to cut. I used the Wild Card cartridge, as I just love this scalloped circle card.
I inked the edges with Memento ink and die cut more circles with Nestabilities and my circle cutter from We R MemoryKeepers. The image is cut using a die from Marianne Design giving it a nice doily look. I am entering this card in Cute Card Thursday Challenge 172; Lace. I have used 2 types of lace on this card, just love lace and doilies. This card is also going in the Basic Grey Challenge 48; Doilies and ribbons.
The image is coloured with Caran d'Ache watercolour pencils. I also used some white metallic paint for the dress. The flowers are from Marianne Design and the designer paper is from Basic Grey Kioshi. The flower centers are done with Viva pearl pen and Stickles.
The inside of the card got some decoration too. There is something about Basic Grey papers that makes every card special.
