Hello Doily for FM32

Hello Everyone:  Now that the weekend is over, I have been able to do some serious stamping.  Over the weekend, I had my grandchildren sleep over and while they are getting older, they still like to have Nan's attention.  So, it is about getting something "good" to eat and keeping them entertained. 

I received a lovely birthday present from my niece, so I created and stamped her a thank you card.  This card is based on the Friday Mashup challenge, "Let's Here It for the Girls".  The challenge is:
  1. Make a project featuring "A Girly Theme".
  2. Or Make a project using "Your Favorite Technique".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Girly project using your Favorite Technique".

What could be more"girly" then a doily, crochet trim, roses and vintage.  And as for the technique, I used two of favourites, resist embossing and distressing.  After embossing the doily, I fussy cut it before attaching to the Morning Mocha DSP.  The idea for using Seam Binding Ribbon roses came from Ann Schach and the tutorial is HERE.  Thanks Ann.
