SYS Saturday

Hello Crafters!
I have another Stir Your Stash Saturday for you.  First here's the sketch.
I can't seem to stop using the doilies I found in my stash a little while back.
I started with a swirl background in Going Gray ink on Whisper White cardstock trimmed to 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".  The edges are inked in Going Gray also.  I found this beautiful shimmery charcoal gray cardstock from Core'dinations to use for the backing of the card and ran a small piece through the Big Shot with a dotted folder.  I sanded the raised dots to distress it a bit.  The bow is some organdy ribbon I had in my humungous stash of ribbon (some day I'll have to show it to you!) which I wrapped around the whole card front.  The doily was a white one I inked with Baroque Burgandy using my brayer.  Isn't it cool how you still see a little white?  This was just glued down to the card on the left over the bow.  I punched a 2" circle, inked the edges in going gray and stamped the ornament (from SU's new ornament set).  This is popped up in the center of the doily.  I added a little stickles to the top & middle of the ornament, around the the doily and 3 dots on the upper right portion of the Core'dinations cardstock.  Quickly I added some Martha Stewart glitter to make it show up a little better.  Pretty simple card really and it went pretty fast.
Thanks for visiting today.  Be sure to stop back for my challenge posts for Eclectic Ellapu and Artistic Inspirations this week.  Have a great weekend!
