Today I am playing along with the Retro Sketch challenge…I just love this doily die and was excited to use it for this sketch.  I hope I have not bored ya’ll with yet another card using the Bloom With Hope stamp set.  I have just been having to much fun with it…hopefully it will inspire you rather than bore you!!

Card details:  Stampin Up’s Bloom With Hope stamp set…Darling Doily die from Stampin Up…I used the paper piecing technique to give the petals some dimension…Ink and papers are also from Stampin Up…finished it off with some embellishments–ribbon, button, bakers twine, and candy dots.
