Hi There

 The Shabby Tea Room has a fun recipe challenge for week #64: '2-4-6'.
Our recipe includes 2 patterned papers, 4 buttons, and 6 layers.


I'm also entering this in the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge based on this sketch:


I stamped the doily pattern onto PTI Vintage Cream CS with Waltzingmouse Dainty Doilies - Large Set. Ever since first seeing this set I have wantd to create patterned paper with it. The blue die cut doily was made with a Spellbinders Floral Motif die.
For those of you as old as me - do you remember colored 'typing' paper? I have a large stack that was given to me many years ago that I have kept just in case I need it. It makes the prettiest translucent doilies!
And those pink depression glass buttons finally got placed on a card. I've been admiring those for years too. If you have a button shanker you can remove shanks from glass buttons just like you do with plastic buttons. Then you can glue them down.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
