Doilies Just Because Card

It's challenge time again.  I have found I like making cards for challenges, it gives me a direction to focus on.  The Doilies Just Because Card was made with two challenges in mind.  CAS-ual Fridays challenge is to use punches or dies, making this card I used three different punches and my Cricut machine.  The second challenge comes from Moxie Fab World doilies & lace challenge.  I love the colors in this card and the sentiment "Just Because" can be used for many occasions.

Doilies Just Because Card Directions:
  1. Make card from tan cardstock.  Finished Size: 4.5" x 6.25".
  2. Trim patterned paper (Doilies, Restoration Collection by Crate Paper), ink edges, and adhere.
  3. Punch plum cardstock (American Crafts) and tan cardstock with Fiskars Upper Crest edge punch, layer, and adhere.
  4. Punch lucky limeade cardstock (Stampin' Up!) with Stampin' Up! lace ribbon border punch, and adhere.
  5. Punch plum cardstock with EK Success real estate sign punch, punch or cut 2" oval with Cricut machine, stamp sentiment with lucky limeade classic stampin' pad, and layer.
  6. Use X-acto knife and cut a small slit by patterned paper, place ribbon through slit and wrap around card, tie bow, and attach sentiment with dimensionals.
