Express Yourself

First of all, the idea here is to express yourself with this lovely card creation.  Additionally, the colors coordinate so well.  The Doilies just compliment the background and probably give you an added amount of creativity.  I’m always happy to try new things and step out of my comfort zone with a card.  Maybe this would be that card for you.  So take a chance and express yourself with the Dear Doily stamp set.
