{Love} - Creating Pretty Cards 7

I created this card for this month's challenge at Craft Project Central.  The challenge runs all month long and you can enter as may times as you wish, but you must use Stampin' Up supplies only.  In the past I have started out with great intentions and somewhere along the line I've used something that wasn't Stampin' Up so I haven't entered.  Today however I got it right!!!

I stamped the medium sized doily onto whisper white card stock and punched it out with the 1 3/4" Circle punch.  The card base is Basic Gray and the pattern papers are from the Welcome Neighbor paper pack. 

For the inside I cut the Whisper White at 5 1/4" x 4 " and a border using the Welcome Neighbor DSP.

I stamped with the other three stamps from the Delicate Doilies set on the  envelope and then embossed using Melon Mambo Embossing powder.  I believe that it's a nice touch to finish off your card. 

Thanks for stopping by.
