Generations Challenge at The Sisterhood

The challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters
is being hosted by Agata and she has chosen
the theme 'Generations'
use an old photo or anything about generations
to create your project!

I had a sweet image left over from my DT days with Crafty Secrets
and decided to use it for my project.

I used some new papers from Kaisercraft called Secret Garden.
What you probably can't notice is over the gingham paper
I have a recycled piece of packaging from Prima.
It is a clear plastic piece with doilies on it.
It was so pretty I had to keep it...
it adds just a touch of elegance to the card.

Under the image is my favorite doily die....
I have a lots of doily dies, but I seem to pick this one up the most.

Make sure to pop on over to The Sisterhood blog and see what my
'sistahs' have created...
and join in the challenge with us....
see you there!

Darlene said...

Such a pretty card Diane! Love the image and your soft pink papers, ribbon, flowers and gorgeous lacy butterfly set it off perfectly! Great job as always!

I can see a hint of the doily-pattern packaging. What a great idea! Too pretty to toss. Speaking of pretty, there is so much pretty on this card I hardly know where to start! Of course, the paper, flowers, bow, image... but I'm loving that dainty crochet butterfly, too. I finally got the French Pasty Doily die. My first and only doily die. Such a classic!
