Grandma's Attic.....

Grandma's Attic.....So Grab A Doily!

Good Morning Crafters!  Donna Phelan here, excited to be hosting the new Mod Squad Challenge!  For today's Challenge I want you to incorporate a Doily into your card or project.  It can be in a subtle way, which I have chosen, or in a big bold way, your choice!  Just make sure we can see at least a peek!

My first card only measures 4.25 x 4.25 inches.

I used the Gina K Designs stamp set, All Occasion Tags, an oldie but a goodie!  The card stock is Pure Luxury Wild Orchid, by GKD and the Designer Paper is Dots And Stripes, by American Crafts.  The Doily I used is bright and white and really stands out.  Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Spellbinders die, EK Success Butterfly Trio Punch (top layer punched out on Vellum) and a few Adhesive Rhinestones complete this card. 

My second card is a little bit more elaborate.

This card uses the Gina K Designs stamp set Mistletoe Memories, just perfect for the Holiday Season!  Card stock is GKD Pure Luxury Asparagus and Passionate Pink

I've added lots of little accents, Adhesive Pearls, Flamingo Liquid Pearls, Chipboard Button, Button, Twine, Corner Punch, Doily, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Pink and White Gingham Ribbon, Sizzix Die, Branch With Leaves, and Chunky White Glitter for snow.

So climb up to your Nana's attic or open up that wonderful crafty accent drawer and pull out a Doily!


Since this is the first week of the month....the FABULOUS prize is an awesome $50 gift certificate to Gina K. Designs!!!!!
And now for some guidelines:
-Please create a new card/project for each challenge.

-You may use any vendors/products.

-The host/hostess will choose 3 winners.

-All 3 cards will be pinned to our Mod Squad Challenge Blog Pinterest Board (follow the link on the right column) and when there is a craft prize the host/hostess will choose one from among those 3 winning cards. The winners will be announced in a separate post that will go up on Tuesdays before the next challenge post goes up. Any winners of craft prizes have 1 week to respond to claim the prize. Prizes that are unclaimed will be offered again on another challenge.

-Our challenges may be combined with up to 4 other challenges, so to be eligible for any prizes and Pinning you can have a total of 5 challenges you've entered. We rely on the honor system so please be honest.
I can not wait to see what you all create!!!
