Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #12 - Guest Designer Post

Hi there, everyone! I'm stopping by today to share a recent creation of mine made for the current challenge over at Tic-Tac-Toe. For today's card, I chose to play with the first line in the table which is Doily, Layers & Dimensions, and Bird/Bees, Butterflies. And now, without further ado, let's get right to the card:

I've decided to make a cute little scene with some bright summer colors. The adorable Coffee Friends are a freebie from Craftin Desert Divas which I colored with Copic markers and fussy-cut so that I could place them in the middle of the summer scene. 
The background was made in 3 stages:
1. I die cut one of Marianne Designs papers and a leftover from received paper from Mavelu store with Blueprints #20 by My Favourite Things.
2. Placed them on a piece of paper colored with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.
3. Then I die cut French Pastry Doily by Cherry Lynn Designs, colored its center with distress inks and placed it on top of the design papers.
Once the main scene was complete, I stamped a sentiment using Harold's ABCs by Lawn Fawn, white heat embossed it and foam mounted it on my card to add some dimension. I placed a butterfly from Mama Elephant's stamp set on top of the second part of the sentiment and added a couple of enamel dots to finish off my card.

I guess this is it for today:) Hope you all have enjoyed this inspiration for the current challenge at Tic-Tac-Toe and got inspired to join our challenge! I would also like to thank Ka for having me as a guest for this challenge and I'll be looking forward to having a chance to create something else for one of your next challenges.
