I had to try the whole doily trend for myself, just because I happened to be on the cake decorating aisle at Michael's and saw--SURPRISE--little doilies. They seemed like a good idea at the time.
This card doesn't really scream LateBlossom style, but I like it anyway. It uses an old PSX thank you stamp and some of my considerable stash of light blue pearls that have languished for too long. I do think the sentiment would look better if it were stamped in navy or dark gray rather than black, though. The black seems a tad stark.
How-To Tips: I used a circle of white cardstock to give some support under the center of the doily, which is really quite flimsy. Since I didn't glue down the lacy edges of the doily, it sort of curls off the card...an effect that I really like. The ribbon helps anchor the doily on the card; without it, the doily seemed sort of floaty. The card is 5" square, which fits into some standard square envies I picked up at Marco's.
It's more than one layer, so not appropriate for an OLW challenge, but I challenge you to look for opportunities to try trendy things outside your comfort zone whenever you can, especially when it doesn't cost much to do so. I'm not going to be slapping a doily on any ol' thing in the future, but it certainly was fun to play with them!
