Another Challenge Card

The base is a 6x6 CTMH Lovely Leaves paper pack, a second piece from the pack is cut at 2.5x6.  Used CTMH clear embossing powder on mulberry paper using CTMH Dragonfly wood mounted stamp, then used dauber to apply CTMH Tropical Blue stamp pad. I cut a 6x1.5 piece of dark blue cardstock and used a Martha Stewart Doily Punch to make the scallop edge.  I cut a piece of ivory cs into a 1.5" circle, crumpled it up and applied CTMH cocoa sp ink with a sponge around the edges and the creases. Then cut a 2.5" circle and used the MS Doily punch around the edges, crumpled it up, applied white embossing powder to the creases and edges, then applied the cocoa ink over the embossed lines.  I cut 2 7" pieces of old lace bought from Wal-Mart years ago, taped them back to back, applied cocoa ink to the edges to darken them
a little more. Next I cut a piece of CTMH Star Spangled Blue Grosgrain ribbon that I taped to cover where the lace was joined.  I placed two misc. buttons in the corner and the sentiment is in the Porcelain font from , sponging it again with cocoa ink.
