Moxie Fab World Challenge: Diggin' On Doilies & Lace

Hello! Here's a card I created for the Moxie Fab World Challenge: Diggin' On Doilies & Lace. I don't typically use doilies and/or lace on my cards, so this was a REAL stretch for me! But...that's the whole point of playing along with these challenges, right? They encourage us to step outside of our comfort zone and try something new!!! So here goes:

I fussy-cut the doilies from patterned paper. I used my new Epic Six machine, Cuttlebug layered flower dies, and pages from an old novel to create the flower in the center! I added those polka dot leaves at the last minute (just cut them by hand and curled up the edges after attaching them with double-sided adhesive). Cute!

Here are some close-ups:
