Get Well Doily

Another card kit creation. The SU Medallion stamp has been a favorite since it came out, and the Doily sets are right up there. All the large background stamps are so versatile; I just have to remember to get them out and play!

This challenge is to use girly elements. I opted for doilies and ribbon, but went a non-girly color to change things up a bit.

First think about how you would describe yourself - all the different aspects of your personality. ~ Colorful, practical and plain with a touch of OCD (like things neat and organized).
Second, use that description to create a card that is the OPPOSITE of how you would describe yourself: Monochormatic (ack, it hurts to not use any color), frilly lace (too girly for me), and egads – is that wrinkled ribbon I see and ‘dirty’ distressed inking? So not fitting with my organized OCD tendencies.
