Hello Doily for my sweet friend

This month I will be kept really busy as I have quite a lot of birthdays, male and female, 
so I have made a start today on one of my female friends birthday cards.

A really CAS card that looks a million dollars - don't you think?
I saw something similar using the retired Medallion stamp and thought this would work just as well.
Colour combo is Riding Hood Red (which will retire shortly), Whisper White and Old Olive.
Stamps used are - Helly Doily, You are loved and Petite Pairs.
The doily was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White embossing powder.
The flower spray from You Are Loved was inked up using Stampin' Write marker pens
in Riding Hood Red and Old Olive. Then this was die cut with the Circles Die (now retired).
The 2.3/8" scallop circle was punched and glued behind this.
This was raised up on dimensionals
The sentiments were both also stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with white EP.
I think I might well try this in different colourways.
