I love the latest rage of doilies. Soft, girlie, vintage, and shabby. Perfect for any Christmas project. For my card today, I grabbed the stamp, Circle Lace, from Hero Arts. I stamped the image twice and then applied a special mix of embossing powder and glitter. (Take an empty container and mix some glitter into your embossing powder. Highly technical. Hahahaha!:))

Here is a close up view of the stamped image.
